At the SAP Sapphire 09 event, the tweets came fast and furious for anyone following #sapphire09. At one point, in fact, the #sapphire09 topic had trended into the top 10 Twitter topics, reportedly right near “Star Trek.”
Beyond the tweets about person-to-person logistics and polite ReTweets, I found some really interesting and funny 140-character-or-less tidbits. Here are my favorite tweets (mostly unedited) from the show (in chronological order):
@sbjet Is Twitter hurting conference attendance?? There are many folks live Tweeting #sapphire09, it almost like being there.

@mkrigsman Hasso speaks with the authority of one who is simply beyond reproach. A beautiful thing to see. #sapphire09
