From April 12-14, more than 125 seabird scientists, conservationists and NGOs from all over the world shared research, on Twitter. In case you missed it, here is mine!
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.
