Inside the ASC

September 22
Tweet Street: ASC day 1 in social media bites

Twitter roared through the ASC today like wildfire, with participants taking to the social media platform in their tens to break the scientific presentations on show down into 140-character bites. Although that seems improbable (and by no means can a single post be an exhaustive account of a research effort), the idea for the outsider is irresistible: a short, snappy headline that encapsulates the essence of the talk, or at least one of the main messages. 

As one participant in the Ecosystem and Dynamics Open Session put it 'scientists should be able to write what they did in the meeting on the back of a matchbox'. Matchbox, post-it note, stamp, whatever. The quest for conciseness in communication is always a worthy one. 

Here's a highlight reel the Tweets to narrate the conference's first day*
