That's a good idea. No I didn't think that way. I'm also considering a Facebook Group for just the conference and people can post to that. Thanks for your help.

@Joe, have you considered sending questions to email address rather than texting? I would assume that most users with texting capability also have emailing capability. This would also eliminate the 140 char limit.

If I'm organizing a conference, how would I set up the ability for participants to text questions from their mobile phones without having to be a member of twitter or chatter or whatever else?  I saw this done at the FDR Conference in Atlanta this past August but can't seem to figure out how to do this.  Any suggestions?

Fellow GovLooper Bill Schrier had a good post on local government use of social media (and new technology in general) yesterday.
