#Jazzlives -- the Twitter campaign aimed at demonstrating that there is a big and enthusiastic audience for live jazz -- is one year old. What has it wrought?
First: What is #jazzlives and how does it work? To participate in the campaign, audience members at live jazz performances "tweet" - write a post on their Twitter account-- about who they heard and where they heard them, including "#jazzlives" in the total 140 characters. You can view all #jazzlives posts as a "stream" on various websites and blogs, including this one. You can also view #jazzlives "tweets" by going to Twitter.com and searching on #jazzlives. You don't need a Twitter account to do this. But if you want your own #jazzlives stream, please leave a note in the "comments" box at the end of this post, and you'll be sent details.
