Twitter for Professionals in Biomedical Research

Made for the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research by Brian Glanz @brianglanz, with this we held a workshop in three parts. 1: training "From Zero to Twitter," 2: a panel discussion "Crisis and Controversy, How Not to Go Viral," and 3: "Proving Twitter is Worth Your Time" on altmetrics including those of the day. The hashtag was #sharebr for 'share biomedical research'.
