Twitter is a fantastic tool to build a prospering (trauma) research community. At least, that’s what I tried to make you believe :-).
The main arguments? It’s an ideal platform for sharing new publications, brainstorming on how to solve difficulties in your research, and finding support.
I received many positive reactions on the post (and on it’s succesor How to start with Twitter when you are a trauma researcher), including a number of people who joined Twitter (yes!).
So I thought it would be nice to organize a Tweet chat, to get to know each other and exchange some ideas & tips on the use of social media.
Ouch… there was only one participant, who had to run for a meeting after a few minutes… Possibly, I have been too quick with setting the chat up. Another option is that the timing was inconvenient for people. However, seeing the amount of interest in the past few weeks, I think there will be a moment that we’ll have that rich exchange.
Therefore, let’s see if we can find a good moment for a new chat. Even if the group is small (but preferably, more than two :-)), it can be valuable and fun.
