We're about to kick off the 3rd World Seabird Twitter Conference (#WSTC3)! It launches in just 2 hours (0:00 UTC) and will run for 3 days.
Twitter Conferences are a carbon friendly and free science communication event exclusively held on Twitter (See our note in Science!). Over the next 3 days seabird researchers, conservationists and NGOs from all over the world will share their work in 6 tweets. Last year, the World Seabird Twitter Conference reached over 2 MILLION people, and I can't wait to see how it will grow given the number of presenters has nearly doubled.
If you want to tune in, and you have a twitter account, look up "#WSTC3" to find and follow presentations. Add this hashtag to your tweets to take part in the conversation. For those without a social media account, you can still view the presentations: head over to Twitter or seabirds.net.
This year's abstract book includes a timetable of >125 presentations, grouped into 22 themed sessions and scheduled across all time zones. This year, thanks to BlackBawks, we also have an online interactive schedule.
