Stefan Frisch (@stefanafrisch) is an Associate Professor in speech production and language at the University of South Florida and joined RealScientists in December. Stefan covered all manner of interesting languaging (totally a word) including some amazing tongue ultrasounds!
1/Not nearly enough science tweets! My research work on coarticulation uses ultrasound imaging of the tongue. Here's an example of a /k/ consonant followed by two different vowels, the top one before an "ee" vowel (keep) and the bottom one before an "aw" vowel (cough). pic.twitter.com/4KWf9qaZOW

but also, there were cats!
Good morning. I’ve been up to a while and have already had coffee, breakfast, and done some chores. I answered a few questions but hadn’t written a tweet yet because this guy was asking for extra love. pic.twitter.com/zphVMbMPXl

Stefan kindly took the time to reflect on his curation week:
In general terms, how did you find your week as a curator?
It can be a shock talking to so many. Did you find the sudden rush of interactions (good and bad) daunting?
No. I was not overwhelmed with interactions.
What were the highlights? Were there any lowlights?
Enjoyed the opportunity to share details of language experiments with so many followers.
Is there anything you wanted to get out of / do on the RS account that you didn’t manage to fit in?
Should have had more calls for Q&A
Did you have a plan? If so, did you stick to it?
Do you have any tips or advice for future RS curators?
Plan for a two hours a day.
What other people or accounts should people follow if they enjoyed your tweets this week?
I had a tweet on this. Off the top of my head @2scis podcast and @tasteofsci
