The “I use twitter to spread science” badge.


Science in less than 140 characters is beautiful too (DN).



  1. I need this badge. I tweet fieldwork horror stories. Does that count? Plus, I actually used the Joint Assembly of the American Geophysical Union and Canadian Geophysical Union (etc.) spring meeting hash-tag. How nerdy is that?

  2. I earn this badge because I am a science writer for Johns Hopkins University full-time and the Baltimore Science News Examiner, in my spare time! I tweet my stories and the science news of many others every single day. In fact, I should get too badges! There should be a Level I, II, III etc. Cool!!

  3. And I’m one of the people Liz Ditz has honoured with this badge. It is now on my blog with pride, although I tweet about science for babies and kids so not quite at the high level of other recipients.

  4. I tweet all the time about space-science topics. It has even helped me get into a NASA Tweetup event, where I was encouraged to spend MORE time tweeting about science! YESSS! Life is good!
