Views & Notes: January 2015 Edition
By Dan Schechner on December 30, 2014

* #WhatAShow: So much positive energy from the 2014 PRI Trade Show, and such optimism for the racing industry heading into 2015! While our February issue will include complete coverage of PRI 2014, at this time we can report that PRI’s social media efforts during the Trade Show were a big hit. In fact, it’s come to our attention that during at least one of our Trade Show days, “#prishow” was one of the top trending topics on Twitter! According to the folks that track such metrics, Twitter Trends are identified as “topics that are being talked about more right now than they were previously. The Trends list is designed to help people discover the ‘most breaking’ news from across the world, in real-time.” That said, we thought it would be fun to list some of our favorite tweets from the 2014 Show. Following, listed in chronological order, is a look back at PRI through the lens of Twitter:
