Scientific Twitter Types - Scientwists
by David Bradley
This is the legacy list of scientwists started in January 2009 and eventually reaching 500+ members. Keeping it up to date became a chore early on as Wordpress couldn't handle the growing number of calls to Twitter, the sheer size of the table, and more to the point updating it when scientwists (scientists, science writers, science librarians, others in science) changed their avatars or bios was becoming a full-time job.
So...I turned to TweepML.org to help organise the Twitter science types into bite-sized chunks of up to 100 arranged alphabetically and Tweeted about it, within a week we had added 100 more members and I expect the list to keep growing. It would be great to have 1000 scientwists by the end of 2009. 10 lists 0f 100 is the TweepML limit on an account, so at that point the project will be perhaps be mothballed or I'll just create a second account, eh?
