Biotweeps is a science communication project which features a different biologist every week.  The first Biotweeps Twitter Conference, #BTCon17, brought together 60 presenters from 12 countries, from across the biological sciences. The conference was extremely successful, engaging 1,200 people and with an estimated global audience of 22 million people (see our Nature Communications article, here).

The second Biotweeps Twitter Conference (BTCon18),  was split over two days between the 21-22 of June, 2018. It featured invited presenters as well as plenty of presentations selected from submitted abstracts. 

The entire conference has been saved as a series of Twitter moments, all of which can be found, below. You can also check out the schedule and all abstracts in the site menu, above.
