This is the final post outlining the characters at the 140 Character Conference in Detroit as defined on Dictionary.com.
Dictionary.com defines the word character in several ways, including:
- In harmony with one’s personal character or disposition: Such behavior is not in character for him.
The music industry has been going through some major changes in recent years. The Business of Music panel moderator Hubert Sawyers III, Digital Marketing Strategist, leads discussion with Dominic Arellano, Founder of The Few Records, Jason Gittinger, Head of The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music / Drummer for The Mega 80s, and Martin Smith, VP of Marketing at A-Side Worldwide on the effect of social media on the music industry.
- In accordance with the role or personality assumed in a performance: an actor in character.

Many stories can be found in medical facilities but it’s unusual to find a hospital that will publicly tell them. Detroit Medical Center (DMC), has expanded traditional advertising into new social media realms, such as tweeting from within operating rooms. Julian Bond, Social Media/Marketing Manager talks about this unique approach.
- Away from the role or personality assumed in a performance: The actor stepped out of character.
Luke Renner of Fireside International introduced us to Sylove Jean who was catapulted onto our television screens after her video post-earthquake in Haiti. “I speak to the world before my president,” is a dramatic statement of truth by Sylove about the impact of the real time web on our world.
