Tweet during the Fall meeting, please! Hello to all AGU B-section tweeps! We highly encourage live tweeting of #AGU17. Please use #biogeo for all tweets related to B-section events and sessions. We’ll make sure to amplify your #scicomm by retweeting from @AGUBiogeo. Just make sure to follow AGU’s social media guidelines. Reminder: photography and video and/or audio recording of oral sessions, posters, lectures, and keynotes are not allowed.

Looking for volunteers for guest tweeters: AGU’s B-section twitter feed @AGUbiogeo is looking for volunteers to serve as guest tweeters! To liven up our Twitter page, we are seeking B-section members to guest-tweet about their science to 1000+ followers of @AGUbiogeo for 1 week, similar to the rotational science tweeting of @realscientists. Email B-section social media coordinator Jennifer Glass at if you’re interested in a guest-tweeting rotation, and we’ll get you on the schedule!
