Chirp! Twitter Reveals Its First Official Conference

Twitter has just announced Chirp, the first official Twitter developer conference. It will take place at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco, CA, on April 14 and 15.

The conference, which will be keynoted by Twitter's leadership, including co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams, will be a two-day shindig. The first day will go over subjects such as Oauth, geolocation and business strategies, while the second day will be a 24-hour hack-a-thon for building apps and sharing ideas.

There is actually a great deal of information on the quirky but rather elegant website, such as a teaser for the after party, details on the 24-hour Hack Day schedule and my personal favorite, a secret portal for creating your own Origami Chirp Bird. As a master of the ancient art of paper folding, I really appreciate this easter egg.

Demand will certainly outstrip seats at this conference. Only 800 seats will be available (the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, while gorgeous, is not a large venue for a conference).

The first wave of 100 tickets are now out, but require a little programming on your side — you need to use the API to find the username of user id 6253282 in order to register on Eventbrite. It'll also put you back $469.

If you can't attend or don't manage to snatch up one of the 800 tickets, don't fret too much — we will be there to cover the entire thing.
