Cannes Lions, a long-running awards ceremony and convention for people in the “creative communications” industry, kicked off in the South of France over the weekend.
Normally, this would be but a footnote in TNW’s list of interests, but our curiosity was piqued when Twitter unveiled its official @dronie account. As the name implies, the company will be sharing selfies throughout the week using the increasingly popular unmanned aerial vehicles.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

The ‘Dronie’ account could be nothing more than a marketing stunt for the next five days – an illustration of Twitter’s own “creative communications” – but we’re hopeful it’ll live on after the show. Most importantly, who would you like featured in Twitter’s next official ‘Dronie’?
