The is a bacteriology conference in London right now that is being live tweeted. It's like I'm really there!

Jan 28, 2016

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.

I'm a freelance science communicator, formerly 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.

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
