Confluence Conference is Oklahoma City’s digital creativity conference. That description isn’t specific, we know — but that’s kind of the point. The Confluence team works hard to bring together people that live, work, and play in all corners of the internet.

Our speakers include web designers, professional bloggers, award-winning journalists, videographers, and comedians. That means that our attendees can gain insights into whatever it is they do on the internet — whether that’s marketing themselves, their business, their agenda, or connecting with people in the community.

Confluence isn’t just for internet professionals: it is geared to help you find your way and your voice in the dynamic digital world.

If there’s one thing that unites all of the speakers and attendees in the room, it is everyone is looking for ways to have fun with the internet. It’s one of the best ways to connect with people and create bonds, after all.

We wanted to find some of the most influential digital entities out there and bring them into the Confluence community. Some of these individuals have cultivated impressive engagement and created a loyal following. Perhaps unsurprisingly, some of them aren’t real: they are infamous parody accounts on Twitter.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been conducting a series of interviews with some of the most interesting and entertaining digital influencers to show that being sharp, funny and trend-aware can take you far in the digital world.

>>Twitterview with @BillofRightsOKC

Bio: Oh say can you see? My monument is coming to thee. Read my words, Oklahoma.

@ConfluenceCon: Do you prefer 'Bill' or 'William' among friends?

@BillofRightsOKC: I prefer Bill. But, people have the right to call me the name they prefer best.

@CC: Okay, Willy. What is the most important right that you provide for people in Oklahoma?

@BoROKC: I give a reminder of the right to rights & the rights derived from the Bill of Rights. Rights is a weird word.

@CC: Seems like the right to bare/bear arms could be quite fuzzy. Next question... Why did you turn down the role of "treasure map" in the National Treasure movies with @NicolasCagest?

@BoROKC: To be honest, because of his eagle-like hair & declining reputation. I can't besmirch myself.

@CC: @NicolasCagest HAS THE RIGHT TO MAKE ANY MOVIE AS BAD AS HE FEELS NECESSARY. Moving on... Who do you consider as your biggest threat in Oklahoma?

@BoROKC: I have a growing fear of Sally Kern and Governor Fallin's pantsuits.

@CC: Which amendment do you like the least and what would you replace it with?

@BoROKC: Do we really need the 3rd? I think a new consideration would be the right to wear casual attire to work.

@CC: Can you describe the perfect date night for the Bill of Rights? Who would you go with?

@BoROKC: The (hot) citizen & I would sit upon the steps of the Capitol & passionately discuss their rights until dawn. I would love to talk about rights with @RepEmilyVirgin, as she is a vision of protecting citizen's rights.

>>Twitterview with @ThunderTie

Bio: The officially unofficial twitter of Scott Brooks' game time accessory. Synthetic silk, handmade humor.

@ConfluenceCon: It looks like your tie is chalked full of intangibles. Can you tell us a little about it?

@ThunderTie: Most of it is secret, especially with training camp coming up. Plenty of game tape & stat books in there.
