CID PhD’s research went viral after tweet
In 2017, almost 1.3 million new papers were available on PubMed. With an average of over 3500 papers a day, it is a reasonable worry that my publication will be lost in the pile.
“Why don’t you tweet about it?” suggested my supervisor.
“Sure it won’t hurt” I thought.
Imagine my surprise looking at some stats three days later: the tweet was viewed over 17000 times, 700 people interacted with it, more than 50 preprint downloads, and the related webapp was used for over 20 hours!
Not bad for a first tweet.
