How Top Scientists Use Twitter to Support their Research
When: Thursday, November 7, 2019, at 4 PM BST (UTC+1); 11AM EST (UTC -4); 8AM PST (UTC -7)
Scientists are increasingly using social media as vehicles via which to communicate with other scientists and with the public. Social media platforms also provide excellent opportunities to build professional networks, learn about opportunities, and develop a sense of community.
This webinar is the second in a series about social media for scientists. In this webinar, our panelists will share tips, stories, and insights about how they use Twitter to connect and collaborate with other scientists
Panelists, Erin Sparks, Dan Kliebenstein, Sophien Kamoun, and Jennifer Regala will address the following questions, and more:
- How and why did you get started using social media for science communication?
- People who are reluctant to engage with social media often cite concerns about time demands. How do you fit it into your schedule, and how does it impact the time you spend on other tasks?
- Have you been harassed (or “trolled”), and if so, how did you deal with it?
