SDSS Tweep of the Week: Jennifer Johnson.

During the American Astronomical Society meeting in Florida, the SDSS-IV Spokesperson will be taking the reins of the Twitter account. Look for lots of opinions about interesting science, astronomy sociology and the importance of surveys. Stop by the SDSS booth in the exhibit hall to see our plates for education program, get some experience retrieving SDSS data, ask all your questions about how to turn SDSS photons into science, and charge your laptop!
