Conferences are big business. They are expensive to get to not to mention of the carbon cost of hundreds of delegates flying around the globe to meet in person! Well, the 2nd World Seabird Twitter Conference just wrapped up, and it was a resounding success.
Yesterday I caught up with Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC)'s David Curnow to explain what a Twitter Conference is and how a global community of seabird scientists came together to share their research with each other - and the general public - in presentations of 6 tweets or less.
If you missed the Conference, we've curated the Proceedings of the 2nd World Seabird Twitter Conference (#WSTC2) for your reading pleasure.
