New From scite: “Twitter + Scientific Publishing = @trendingcites”
From the Scite Blog:
Twitter, a social media platform where users discuss nearly any topic, represents a global conversation. With topics ranging from celebrity deaths, government upheavals, sports, science, and more, Twitter is an amazing resource for information.
At scite, we work with another amazing source of information, research publications. What if these worlds were combined? With the launch of a new Twitter bot @trendingcites, that’s exactly what we aim to do.
Our new Twitter bot identifies trending topics on Twitter and searches them against the research literature, surfacing snippets from the full-text of research articles where those keywords match. Some recent examples include, “Superbowl”, which was trending with the recent NFL playoffs sports happening.
