Happy Monday! Here is the second thread on Twitter for science organizations. Today we will discuss tweets - how to craft them, how to use hashtags, mentions and quote tweets @PrinSciAdvGoI

For our first thread in this series click here -
The one thing to take away from this thread is this - All tweets are public interactions. Not only are they interactions with the public, but tweets are also public information. A social media rep speaks on behalf of the organisation. Keep personal opinions for personal accounts
Write full sentences but be as brief as possible. Only use commonly known abbreviations - if necessary, expand them. Do not use too much scientific jargon - remember you are reaching out to the general public, not a group of scientists.

Our recent work uses #kefir – a natural milk fermenting community – to unravel mechanisms of coexistence in complex communities. Now on bioRxiv:… (thread 1/5)
We show how microbes poorly suited for milk surprisingly dominate the kefir community through metabolic cooperation. The kefir grain acts as a ‘basecamp’ for this complex community (30-50 species), from which they colonize the milk in a complex yet organized manner (thread 2/5)
The ability of the microbial species in kefir to stick together and collaborate is what makes them successful, e.g. by being more stress resistant. This image shows one of the interaction networks we uncovered for kefir species

It doesn’t seem to be as easy as it looks like 😋
My version 🤠
Its definitely worse than the last time 🍳
1. Its over cooked from the outside.
2. Runny from the inside.
Possibilities why it went wrong:
1. Very hot pan to start with?
2. No enough scrambling?
It tastes good to me😋
Take those points in account & try again next week.

We’re running a live Outbreak Control exercise w reps from @RCTCouncil @swpolice @WelshGovernment @CV_UHB @CwmTaf @H_S_E & PHW! #WPHC17
This exercise is live and unscripted - a demonstration of the serious and immediate nature of high-risk public health scenarios. #WPHC17
The scenario: microbiology has confirmed 4 cases of an infectious disease within 1 week; 1 deceased, no clear link between cases. #WPHC17
