Summary of tweeting from #Botany2016

Twitter activity for #Botany2016 has declined now that the conference has been over for a couple of days.


Spirts remained high throughout the runup to the conference, dipping below zero only once about a week before everyone arrived.


@JChrisPires contributed a larger number of tweets (including tweets of others that he retweeted) than anyone else,


but @uribe_convers had a larger impact, regardless of whether you measure impact in number of retweets


or in terms of number of likes

I’m back

The PC on which darwin was running blew up a couple of weeks ago. I’m in the process of reconstructing what I can, but it’s going to take a while. I’m not likely to recover old posts. Sorry about that.
