INBOUND16 Alec Baldwin Keynote

November 24, 2016 by Boris Poonia

Alas the final day of INBOUND16 arrived and fittingly, the best had been saved for last. It was time for the keynote by Alec “freakin” Baldwin. That’s right, the multi-talented, multifaceted, academy award nominee was in Boston for the final keynote session at INBOUND16. With events earlier in the week with regards to the presidential election still fresh in the minds of everyone and Alec having, to critical acclaim, impersonated the eventual president elect on ‘Saturday Night Live’ for the last 5 weekends in a row; it was unsurprising that his keynote generated increased interest.

And boy did he deliver. But just in case you missed it, here’s the Alec Baldwin keynote in its entirety, condensed into tweets.
