Scientists are some of the brightest minds in society, however, their subject and the way they explain it can sometimes make it difficult for others to understand.
With this in mind, the Twitter hashtag #MyOneScienceTweet encourages scientists from all fields to share their knowledge with others. Founded in 2017 by entomologist Dalton Ludwick, it's become a fascinating thread for scientists to share facts, dispel myths, and dispel misconceptions. Whether discussing important topics like climate change, corroborating scientific facts about vaccines, or laughing at everyday scientific mistakes, this thread provides a wealth of information.
Two years later, #MyOneScienceTweet is still as active as ever. For laypeople interested in scientists' brains, it's a great way to explore the mysteries of the scientific world. There is a wide range of experts who choose to represent their fields publicly, from physicists and biologists to linguists and anthropologists. Some facts may surprise you, while others may encourage you to investigate further.
