This week we celebrate 4 years of @realscientists, a project set up in February 2013 to bring the lives and science of scientists to the world through twitter. Since our humble beginnings, we’ve hosted over 200 scientists, artists, clinicians, writers and communicators; talked about climate change, corals, and all kinds of science from astrophysics to cardiology. It’s a big week this week, with out @RealSciMods‘ Dr Jens Foell hosting this week; we’re launching some new @realscientists projects this year, and some prize give aways this week so stay tuned! Come celebrate with us!
