Just to let you know that there is a bacteriology conference going on in London right now.

For you Tweeters, the conference hashtag is #RSBacteriology.

For all of you non-tweeters, you can check out what people are saying about the conference live here (without even having to register):

I thought this would be a good opportunity to see how live tweeting works at conferences that is relevant to us. I'm finding the discussion really interesting.

Communications Officer, MAX IV Laboratory

I'm a Communications Officer at MAX IV Laboratory in Lund, Sweden, formally a Postdoc in the biofilm field. I'm interested in how bacteria cause disease and look to technology to produce novel tools to study and ultimately prevent infection. Part of my current role is to find ways to use synchrotron radiation to study microorganisms.

Hi Martin. Yes, sure, I can give my impressions of the meeting but unfortunately I wasn't there. I was attending through the medium of Twitter. I just published a post in the Nature Microbiology forum about Live Tweeting conferences. https://naturemicrobiologycommunity.nature.com/users/7272-ben-libberton/posts/4649-now-that-s-how-you-live-tweet-a-conference
