A bunch of interesting Twitterers aggregated in NYC a couple of days ago at the 140 characters conference, discussing various aspects of and uses of Twitter. One of the sessions was about Twitter and Science, led by @thesciencebabe and @jayhawkbabe. I am very jealous I could not be there, but we can all watch the video of their session:
Happy to see the last slide, with @PLoS as one of the recommended Twitter streams to follow for those interested in science.
Now, did people twitter and blog this conference as it was happening, or did they need to get permission from the presenters first?
LOL! Nope, not a science conference, thus totally open. The hashtag #140conf was even in the top 10 Trending on Twitter during the conference.
I feel honored since I am @PLoS! But really, it's the amazing science that we publish that makes my job easy. Thanks guys. Liz
