Looking for science communicators!

The NWE IUSSI Social Media Committee needs you! Would you be able to either step up and volunteer to tweet on behalf of the IUSSI?

We are looking for things like:

Take-over by a student (Masters or PhD) about their research. They send several tweets on behalf of our IUSSI account, with the purpose to show what it is to be a social insect researcher.

Tales from the past. Anecdotes from previous meetings, or history. Maybe interview your VIP and share it via multiple tweets over the year?

Regular retweeting of sister groups (the North American IUSSI, the Brazil section, etc).

Let us know your ideas! - Contact Liz (elizabeth.bates [at] cornwall.ac.uk) for details and if you wish to volunteer!

The NWE IUSSI Twitter account

The NW IUSSI Twitter account already has almost 500 followers, which is a great step in order to increase the number of people we reach with news and achievements of our society. The aim is to use this platform to communicate events, recent publications and news from the society to a wider audience.

As this is still the beginning:

1) If you are a Twitter user, please follow us so that we can follow you back. This will allow us to re-post your research/outreach activities as the society. You can also tag us in your posts if you want us to see it. Use our twitter handle @IUSSI_NWES

2) Whether you use Twitter or not, feel free to send us material (such as an event or a recent publication on social insects) you would like to see posted on Twitter. To do this please email the social media team iussi.nwes.socialmedia@gmail.com.
