Scientists today are using blogging and social media platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ to obtain funding, find jobs, build collaborations, share ideas, or simply curate the incredible amount of science news available today. Come join this hangout with 5 San Diego (recovering) scientists active on Twitter to hear their experiences and 'how-to' get started with Twitter.
