This afternoon I will be tweeting on using social media for research translation & impact, & professional development & advocacy - from a #CroakeyPopUp workshop w @SummerMayFinlay hosted by @BronFredericks & @atsisuq
Before we get started, I will re-share some of the resources and links that we've shared at #CroakeyPopUp hashtag: This one on Twitter and hashtags
Here's a useful resource on promoting your journal articles, and here's a journal showing some ways how:… #CroakeyPopUp cc @atsisuq
Communications is an important part of research process: #CroakeyPopUp
Fundamental to the art & science of communications: storytelling - #CroakeyPopUp
Live-tweeting conferences & other events can contribute to collective impact: #CroakeyPopUP
And if you keep scrolling back through #CroakeyPopUp you will see some lovely pix & tweets from last year's discussions w a wonderful group at @atsisuq
Acknowledgement of Country by @BronFredericks to start #CroakeyPopUp - acknowledging how social media crosses and connects us across many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ Country
Now @SummerMayFinlay asks us to stop and acknowledge what a challenging year it has been; grateful for the Country we live on and that has taken care of us #CroakeyPopUp
A flashback to last year’s #CroakeyPopUp w @atsisuq
Now @SummerMayFinlay is asking participants to consider these questions #CroakeyPopUp
@CarmenParter uses social media to stay in touch w public health news as well as sharing about her work #CroakeyPopUp
“I want to know what I don’t know”. Re using social media for research #CroakeyPopUp
Other wish list on social media: to find out do’s and don’ts #CroakeyPopUp
Others want to use social media to share resources with students & connect w students #CroakeyPopUp
Others want to learn to use Twitter; to learn whether they really need to be on multiple platforms #CroakeyPopUp
“I don’t speak Twitter,” says a participant. “I would love to know what I don’t know” - the 2nd participant to make such a comment. Other Qs - should I have personal & professional accounts? #CroakeyPopUp
Great to hear that @drkatelynbarney began using Twitter after last year's #CroakeyPopUp & has found it useful. Now wants to find out about @PeriscopeCo (I have hardly had a chance to use this post COVID).
As with so many questions about how to use social media, “there is no right or wrong” says @SummerMayFinlay re whether to have separate personal/professional accounts #CroakeyPopUp
Listening to @SummerMayFinlay discussing use of @PeriscopeCo - makes me wonder what impact #COVID has had on its use? #CroakeyPopUp
Now @SummerMayFinlay is describing how many people she has met after first connecting with them on Twitter (including me!) #CroakeyPopUp
Participants raising concerns about digital platforms and privacy, trolling, stalking, attacks #CroakeyPopUp
Also hearing about the importance of social media for connections, both personal and professional #CroakeyPopUp
@CarmenParter uses Twitter and LinkedIn for professional and for personal - Facebook #CroakeyPopUp
Reflecting on participants’ comments (most are not using Twitter much for work), @SummerMayFinlay says Twitter is a fantastic professional network, it’s like a community #CroakeyPopUp
Why use Twitter? @SummerMayFinlay gives some reasons #CroakeyPopUp
Plus, Twitter is a great way of promoting your work, @SummerMayFinlay tells @atsisuq workshop #CroakeyPopUp
Some amazing people doing amazing things on Twitter, @SummerMayFinlay tells @atsisuq workshop - inc @BronFredericks @drcbond @AnitaHeiss #Croakeypopup
Thinking about how to write and pitch your Twitter bio - @SummerMayFinlay gives the examples of the @LowitjaInstitut and @NACCHOAustralia at #CroakeyPopUp
Hearing about the importance of having a complex password on Twitter, change it regularly, & don’t use the same one across platforms - @SummerMayFinlay at #CroakeypopUp (where hacking is under discussion)
Taking some time to examine ‘anatomy of a tweet’ w hashtags, handles, pictures, tagging. Positivity and appealing photos travel well HT @BronFredericks @researchjames @DeadlyChoices at #CroakeyPopUp w @SummerMayFinlay
Need to be thoughtful about tagging people in tweets, says @SummerMayFinlay Make sure the tweet is relevant/useful for the people you are tagging, she says at #CroakeyPopUp
@HealingOurWay has been very successful on @Facebook w about 32,000 followers, because open to interaction, comments etc, says @SummerMayFinlay #Croakeypopup
Now hearing about the potential for using Periscope to livestream from events to a global audience, increasing reach and impact for Indigenous health researchers globally #CroakeyPopUp
@SummerMayFinlay encourages researchers to use live-streaming, eg Periscope, subject to permissions #Croakeypopup
Hearing about the importance of using analytics to understand how best to reach your audience/s (eg timing of posts; their age, gender, location). Communication must resonate w your target audience - @SummerMayFinlay at #CroakeyPopUp
Personally, I’m learning a lot from @SummerMayFinlay on analytics and Facebook! #croakeypopup

It would be unwise of the media to uncritically amplify @ScottMorrisonMP talking up the NSW response to #COVID19 as part of his attack on @DanielAndrewsMP et al & the Victorian response. For starters...
He is playing a short-term political game when the outcomes of the NSW response are still unfolding. Many in NSW must be anxious about the cases in healthcare workers at Sydney hospitals:…
Would be interested to hear what public health people in NSW think of the PM's statements, given that the decision to keep NSW "open for business" is being driven by political & economic considerations. How much more difficult has this approach made the work of #publichealth?

Recommend taking time to read the latest Australian Health Protection Principal Committee statement in full, published today (23 March) following y'days meeting.…
While the increase in cases is worrying, the AHPPC is suggesting Australia in a better situation at this stage of the pandemic than other countries were, ie Italy & USA. The graph below compares 6 countries on the day they reported more than 1000 confirmed cases. #COVID19
"More than half our cases are still imported from overseas or their direct contacts. We have one of the lowest #COVID19 test positivity rates in the world (0.9% compared to USA 13%, UK 5% and even ROK 3%).

In the US, more than 450 public health, human rights & legal experts & organizations have signed this open letter, "Achieving A Fair and Effective #COVID19 Response":…
It is addressed to Vice-President Mike Pence, & other Federal, State & Local Leaders. Clearly the letter is shaped by the particular political & policy context of the US. BUT it does raise many issues important for Australia as well. #Coronavirus #COVID19
How DO we ensure proper care & respect for the rights of those most vulnerable, inc those in prisons & other institutions, aged care facilities etc. Those with limited resources/capacity for preparing & dealing with what is to come. #Coronavirus #COVID19
