You are a young journo. You get an assignment. You don’t know where to start. But you follow and are followed by a bunch of scientists and science journalists you just met at ScienceOnline2010. So you tweet…..and within minutes your story takes off:
cassierodenberg: Starting to work on a lede graph for a story on plant-based medicines. Wish I could float off to a picturesque field right about now.
BoraZ: @cassierodenberg you may want to interview @abelpharmboy for that – he’s the expert!
cassierodenberg: Twitter first: Updated status, then emailed by @abelpharmboy, scientist willing to lend expertise & insight into my plant-med story. Wow!
BoraZ: @cassierodenberg Yes, @abelpharmboy is a real Mensch! Science writers, as @laelaps said in his post, are a helpful, tight-knit community. (referring to this post)
cassierodenberg: @BoraZ: @abelpharmboy = not only an expert, a generous expert! Can’t get over offer to help a strange writer. Sci community is astonishing
Yup. We are all in this together and more we help each other the better it will be for all of us.
