15:40, The end of MeCCSA 2017

The time has come to say goodbye to MeCCSA 2017. It has been a huge success and everyone at the university would like to thank people who attended from far and wide.

So it is goodbye from the live blogging team here at the University of Leeds. Thank you for getting so involved on Twitter and we wish you all a safe journey home, wherever that may be! I will leave you with one of my favourite quotes from this conference, and it comes from only 10 minutes ago.

Make Journalism Great Again!
