What is a Twitter Conference?

A Twitter conference is a social media event that occurs from wherever you might be currently seated. This event brings together biologists and interested non-biologists from around the world to encourage communication and collaboration in an online setting.


How do you participate in a Twitter Conference?

All you need is a Twitter account and handle (e.g. @Biotweeps). You can obtain one of these very easily at After getting a twitter profile, you only need to search for the hashtag #BTCon18 and/or follow Biotweeps to see all posts that are related to the conference.
