with Science Gallery
What's your best tweet?
We're still working on that one - never rest on your tweestory as you're only as good as your last tweet.
What are six things you could never do without?
science, art, chic geeks, inspired creative clashes, gaffer tape, beer.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Hootsuite
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Biorhythm. Peer-reviewed. Arduino. Makerbot. Phlebotomist.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
We go on follow breaks every now and then.
Why should we vote for you?
Because we bring Science and Art together in peaceful harmony or edgy clashes depending on whether we've had our coffee...
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
Art/science, data visualisation, innovation
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
We saw a tweet about some people looking for a venue to host TEDxDublin, and we responded. Within a week the event was organised and sold out
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#ScienceGallery
How do you make your tweets unique?
We use every letter of the alphabet in each tweet. Dgjkmqxz.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Who, us?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Pending neural enhancement, people will be able to read every tweet of the 1,000 people they follow
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
We love @bengoldacre and @SLSingh, but our neighbour @spotticusnh tweets even though he's a stuffed giraffe.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's a waste of time
Why should people follow you?
Because we're reporting from the front-line where science and art collide, and that's a pretty interesting place!
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@projectsugru, @thefrogblog, @the_irish_times, @klillington, @aoifemcl
How do you decide what to tweet?
Would we want to hear about it? Is it a new idea? Is it wonderful?
Why'd you start tweeting?
Our members asked what our twitter username was.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
We've met people from other continents before they visited Dublin, and convinced them to stop by. A great way to make new friends.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Share their ideas
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Falsifying data.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Better, smarter, different, inspiring and surprising.
