Melanie Colón Posted March 9, 2016 Share Posted March 9, 2016 A new meeting has been added to the =1']Ornithology Meetings database. Meeting Description: *Do you study seabirds? **Are you on Twitter? * *Here's your chance to tell world about your seabird research. *Twitter can be a great place to communicate your research to a broader audience. The first World Seabird Twitter Conference (#WSTC1 https://twitter.com/...STC1&src=typd>)featured 42 presenters from all 7 continents, 206 more people engaged in the conversation, reaching 2200 tweets and a total audience of 330,305 people. Each presenter distilled their research into 6 tweets, which were presented during a 15 minute window. Last year this generated 206 conversations - people asking questions and getting answers in real time. If you want to see the presentations from the 1st World Seabird Twitter Conference *click here*. https://storify.com/...abirders/wstc1> *It was such a success, we're holding the 2nd World Seabird Twitter Conference (#WSTC2 https://twitter.com/...STC2&src=typd>)on April 13-15th. * The abstract deadline is 21 March 2016. *To submit an abstract, click here https://docs.google....wform?c=0&w=1>. *Guidelines and FAQ available here https://docs.google...._fwdNj4k/edit>. Registration is free â€“ just look up the hashtag #WSCT2 on April 13-15 on Twitter to follow the conversation. This year *we are inviting seabird organizations to submit an abstract as well.* If selected your organization would have an opportunity to tell the twittersphere about your organization. This could be a chance to tell the broader community about your mission, achievements, publications or conferences - it's up to you! Who knows - by participating you may even attract new members.
