Scratch That: Social-Media Use Will Actually Be Allowed During Bill Clinton’s Keynote at Dreamforce

What we have here is failure to communicate: Attendees at salesforce.com‘s annual Dreamforce cloud-computing convention who attend the keynote address by former President Bill Clinton are not actually barred from Tweeting, live-blogging, Facebook posting, and other social-media use, as reported Wednesday.

A spokesperson for Clinton told Yahoo! News’ The Cutline the confusion resulted from the fact that the event is closed to “traditional media,” and the event host and public-relations company misinterpreted that to mean that the use of mobile devices and social media was banned.

It looks like bloggers are still not considered part of “traditional media.”

Dreamforce will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco Dec. 6-8.
