Best of #SXStarWars Twitter Meme

StarWars.com Team | March 15, 2011

If you were hanging out on Twitter for the last few days you might have noticed a merging of Austin’s most popular digital, film and music fest South By Southwest (SXSW) mixed with your favorite Star Wars characters thanks to the #SXStarwars hashtag meme.

Interactive storytelling consultant Jay Bushman has brought back the #SXStarwars social experiment, as he does every year during SXSW since his first attempt of the Twitter Trench Run was such a geektastic success!

This time fans tweeted about attending #SXStarwars as panelists, party-goers and more.

Below are some of our favorite tweets!
