In the aftermath of Jarrett Byrnes highlighting my blog in his talk on social media in ecology this afternoon, there was a flurry of tweets from various people asking me questions, directing people (or in one case misdirecting people) to my blog, and complimenting me on the blog. I’m aware of this only because I very occasionally search Twitter for tweets on “dynamicecology”, usually when WordPress tells me that a post has been tweeted a bunch of times. But I don’t ordinarily tweet myself–this blog’s Twitter feed currently is just automated tweets of new posts. I broke down and tweeted replies to a few people this afternoon because I felt bad about not responding to tweeted questions and compliments. But while I know increasing numbers of folks find Twitter a valuable tool for helping them do science, it doesn’t really fit my way of working and so I don’t allocate any time to it. So I’m sorry, but I don’t have any plans right now to start tweeting regularly, and I can’t promise to respond if you tweet something to me or about me.
