Ten Simple Rules for using Twitter as a Scientist

You have probably heard it many times from academics who have already discovered the advantages of social media - "you should be on Twitter"! Next to sharing your research, learning about advances from other fields, and cat pictures, many cite the sense of community as an important reason for being on the platform.
