Abstract: “Tales from the Twitterverse” describes Dr. Tyson's running experience communicating science via the medium of Twitter. He now has about 130,000 followers on his twitter handle @neiltyson and was recently selected for Time Magazine's list of the best 140 Twitter feeds. It is perhaps fair to say that, so far, social media and science EPO have not yet been fully introduced to one another. So this plenary talk will be a kind of overview of his successes and failures in the medium, as a way to jumpstart people's interest in what is possible.
