Twitter Timeline: Opening Day of the FIFA Women’s Football Symposium

I’ve been busy at work on the tweets-machine today posting updates throughtout the FIFA Women’s Football Symposium. So, since I’ve been on the computer for the last 8 hours tapping away, I thought it would be both timely (and time-saving if I’m really honest) to post my twitter stream here, knowing all the world may not be following me. I’ve taken out the RTs and personal messages and posted, in reverse chronological order, below. Enjoy!

P.S. Once this post is up I’m headed to the FIFA barbecue dinner and will probably be on Twitter then too: @vandey01.
