The best of TED India captured in tweets!

When TED India was announced, we knew it would be one of the best conferences. Many of our readers wanted to attend but couldn’t. For the benefit of our readers and friends, we created a Dashboard which had the latest blog posts, live pictures, real time tweets and much more at http://TEDIndia.blogadda.com. We followed that post with information about the Twitter profiles and Blogs of the TED India Fellows and TED India speakers. We now present to you the best tweets and quotes from TED India which will convey the audience reactions and knowledge gained from the event.

We trust you would have enjoyed the tweets as much as we did compiling them for you. TED fellows received a special goodie bag from TED with Nokia E71, 1500$ gift vouchers and so much more, the attendees did as well with some of the world’s best products. More importantly, they received so much gyaan from the speakers and made friends with fellow TEDsters. If you find more tweets interesting, do let us know in the comments and we will add over here.
