Live Tweeting at Science conferences
What is it about?
This editorial lays out 10 guidelines for live tweeting at science conferences. All of the rules are pretty much of tweetable length. Its a starting point for expansion and raises awareness of importance of live tweeting for science communication.
Why is it important?
While there have been blogs about live tweeting, blogging etc., we felt it was timely to encourage scientists to live tweet from science conferences so that we can share what is going on with those not at the meeting. In addition this represents science communication, and a means to reach patients and not scientists. Something as simple as a tweet could share ideas, foster collaboration and encourage others.
