"Unlike a virtual conference, Twitter conferences consist of scheduled tweet threads (presentations) that are uploaded on Twitter and directly followed by Q&A sessions. Presenters deliver their study in a thread of 5-6 tweets to discuss the different components of their research. Visuals are encouraged!
Anybody can attend the Twitter conference by following the conference hashtag (#AnimBehav2021) on Twitter. Right after a presentation is uploaded, attendees are encouraged to tweet at the presenter their questions or comments during the slotted time (10 mins) for that presentation. There will be a timetable of the conference tweet ‘talks’ so you know when to be online for the presentations that you would like to engage with. Both the Twitter accounts for the Animal Behavior Society (@AnimBehSociety) and the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (@asab_tweets) will be retweeting the presentations. You can also keep up with the conference hashtag through this website’s twitter feed."
