With 75,000 attendees and keynote speakers that include Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Mobile World Congress 2014 has proven itself to be the hottest, must-attend trade show for the mobile industry. Of course there’s mobile tech innovation on display, but the event is just as driven by the conversation about the challenges of a mobile world. What about access in developing nations? What impact will mobile have on industries like agriculture or issues like urban living? And what about bandwidth and Net Neutrality??
Trade shows, amirite?! That’s all fine and good but let’s lighten up a bit. To wit, here’s the tweets that gave us a belly laugh for being on point about the wackiest and the wonderful of the event. Enjoy!

Just heard the phrase “disruptive solutions“ at #MWC14. It’s like two buzzwords mated and are now happily skipping into the sunset.

Jan’s best laugh line so far: “Our goal is to get every single smartphone user in the world to use WhatsApp…even people in Korea.” #MWC14
