I was at the Buzz140 conference yesterday, in Chennai, organized by the effervescent Kiruba Shankar, Photon (Vasanth and others) and the knowledge conference. It was a one day Twitter conference attended by about 150 folks, many of whom were learning about twitter for the first time.
It was actually a trending topic on twitter for a brief few minutes. (Photos on Flickr) and some by tag.
There was event coverage in the local media – both the Hindu and Deccan Chronicle covered it briefly today.
There was a very interesting topic on Real time search and its implications on Twitter and Google. Many new players have emerged in the space like Topsy, almost.at and Scoopler.
