“You are what you tweet”

Social media gives you a voice, and the opportunity to share your views with other Accelerate attendees. And also make it possible for those not at the event, to feel like they are at the conference.

Be a part of the conversation, share your perspective, opinions, experiences and images! Here are some best practices to follow:

  • Tag @PureStorage to get retweeted by the company handle
  • Tag the Twitter handle of the companies you are talking about
  • Use the #PureAccelerate hashtag to show up in Accelerate conversations
  • For latest updates, follow Pure Storage social handles
  • Tie in hashtags that are commonly seen in the industry (e.g. #AllFlash).
  • Use 2-3 hashtags per tweet, and no more! Be authentic and conversational. Add hashtags within context
  • Retweet influencers, executives, followers as appropriate and add your own valuable content
  • Use photos of speakers with a quote that provides unique insight into dialogue that happened at the event.
  • Focus on quality, not quantity. Try to add value by including relevant points
  • Limit your tweets to 125 characters so they can be easily re-tweeted
  • Spell-check
  • Be authentic on social!



  •  Blindly retweet without adding your own opinion
  •  Add hashtags at the end of the tweet without relation, e.g. great presentation on #InternetofThings @PureStorage #PureStorage
