FinDEVr Silicon Valley: Techs on Twitter

TwitterLogo_blue_newNot to be outdone by the notoriously clever Tweeters of Finovate, the attendees of FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016 produced more than their fair share of insights and observations on Twitter during the show. And for the first time, FinDEVr announced a pair of prizes for those technologists whose use of Twitter during the show was the most remarkable.

Taking home top honors for Most Active Tweeter at FinDEVr Silicon Valley was Bandit, known also by her Twitter handle @miss_haley. With more than 90 tweets over the two days of our developers conference, @miss_haley was hard to beat.

More than mere volume, @miss_haley’s knowledgeable and clever Tweets covered everything from the real-time animations of FinDEVr newcomer Cognitect, to the drama of the Jengawars, to pondering the challenge of voice authentication in an increasingly gender-diverse world.

Also winning one of our Twitter awards was David Pinski (@dapisnki). With tweeting recognized as the Most Effective Use of #FinDEVr, @dapinski impressed with his insightful comments about PwC and blockchain technology, as well as the “courageous and brave” presentation by MX’s Brandon DeWitt, his observations on the difficulty of balancing technology and business perspectives in a FinDEVr presentation, and his creation and awarding of the “Funniest Nerd of the Day” award to IBM’s Stefania Kaz.
