We put our Near West scientists to the test, and asked them to tweet about their zebra mussel shell research — so far — and get a feel for what online tweets are really all about.
It’s easy to mispell a word here and there, now isn’t it?
And difficult to stay within 140 characters, right?
And what does a hashtag do anyway?
All good questions, and now our NWIS scientists are starting to get the hang of it. Here are some of their first-ever tweets:
“Happy Spring!! On April 1, 2014, we planted seeds with our groups. I love this experiment!”
“Our plants are grown-ups not babies anymore. #NWISplants”
“We started this incredible experiment. My group is called the yellows. We planted lettuce, radishes and tomatoes. Our mixes were Mix A, Mix B and Mix C.”
“I planted a seed for the first time in my life.”
We hope to add more tweets soon, so follow us on Twitter during our NAPECA project.
