601 Tchoupitoulas Street
New Orleans, Louisiana 70130
Who Should Attend?
All those who plan to tweet throughout the meeting, those who are interested in learning more about Twitter, and those who are interested in communicating with the public about physics.
Are you going? Tweet it!
The public is interested in your research! Engaging with them on social media is a good way to promote and humanize your work and gives the public a direct link to scientists (you) that may otherwise be inaccessible to them. Amber Stuver (LIGO) will discuss how to use Twitter to engage the interested public and how to effectively communicate your work.
Refreshments will be provided.
