So I’m usually too lazy to tweet a list of all the people I find interesting on Twitter. I thought I’d steal an idea from my first #FF recomendation – @SmallCasserole – who wrote a blog post listing all his favourite tweeters.
Just so that my list is a little bit original, I’ll split them into catagories. I’ll update the list over time with new catagories and new tweeters.
Tweeters - i.e. people I met on Twitter and often exchange tweets
@DrEvanHarris – all round good guy for science and the LibDems
@SmallCasserole – interesting blog and tweets about science, particularly physics
@stpkav – regularly comments on the STFC mess
@RealClimate – their tweets are generally slow and dry but their blog is authoritative (and dry!) That doesn’t sound like much of a recomendation but it is the best place to hear climate scientists on the web.
@jackofkent @davidallengreen – writes about legal things, my initial interest was his involvement with the Simon Singh libel case but he is interesting on many other fronts as well. [ Currently on leave from Twitter.Killed off Jack of Kent.]
@DrPetra – sex educator and fine blogger
@Stephen_Curry – nice blog on science and more
@jonmbutterworth – another LHC person with a nice blog about physics and other stuff
NOISEmakers – a group of early career scientists engaging with the public (I’m one of them)
@NOISEmakers – tweets from the mothership
@lewis_dartnell – astrobiologist
@twhyntie – LHC person
@lisamarieke – particle physicist turned science communicator
Weather and Climate
@TheBarometerPod – the weather and climate podcast from the University of Manchester
@Antarctic_news – this is another twitter account of mine; my PhD was on Antarctic climate. I tweet links to interesting news stories and blogs about Antarctica
@carbonbrief – interesting blog/resource about climate change and communication.
@RealClimate – see above
@alokjha – Guardian science and environment correspondent
@markgfh – Times science editor
Greater Manchester Skeptics in the Pub
@GMSkeptics – the main feed
@janisbennion – one of the organisers
@Dr_Aust_PhD – good for a chat about homeopathy
@xtaldave – good for a rant about homeopathy
