Cultivate followers on social media if you want to communicate science

From the blogs Soapbox Science and Medical Museion :

"Social media platforms can be very limiting. For example, can you define genotype and phenotype in 140 characters or less? If you want to use social media to communicate effectively, you need to drive readers somewhere.

Writing a blog gives substance to your social media presence. You have the opportunity to talk about science in a meaningful way, which ultimately helps people better understand the world around them. Answering those questions is probably why you got into science in the first place. Don’t be afraid to share what you’ve discovered."

The articles were selected from my Twitter and Google Reader streams. Please feel free to send suggestions for articles to and you will receive acknowledgement in the next edition of this publication.
