Your #Posts, #Boosts and #Follows power the timeline here. YOU are the algorithm.

#Following is king
#Boosting is queen
#Likes are sweet
#FollowingBack is neighborly
#Hashtags get you noticed

Also, if you feel someone you follow is #Boosting to much and cluttering your timeline, simply click the three dots (top right) on their home page and tap #HideBoosts. Much nicer than unfollowing.

@PeterKRogan Hi Peter, nice to meet you! Thanks for the info that all looks really interesting, I’ll take a look 😃

RT @PLOSBiology
As World Antimicrobial Awareness Week draws to a close, let's not lose momentum on tackling antimicrobial resistance. @npariente calls for collective action in our editorial.

An incredible achievement by the planetary defense community! #2022WJ1 was a tiny asteroid on a collision course with Earth. But astronomers saw it coming, and NASA’s Scout impact hazard assessment system calculated where it would hit: jpl.nasa.gov/news/nasa-program #CNEOS #PDCO #NASA #Scout #PlanetaryDefense

Something that I hope to spend more time on now that I've wrapped up my PhD is astrophotography.

This photo of the Milky Way was captured over the dark skies of the Ozarks in August 2020. Designated as an International Dark Sky Site, the glow of light pollution is still visible on the horizon, in this case the light dome from Little Rock and surrounding areas.

This photo is a stacked and tracked 30-image composite taken over 30 minutes.

Just migrated to mastodon from Twitter and looking for researchers to follow here to get started. I found some nice lists separated by field but haven't found any for natural language processing. Does anyone know of one?


@Romaq ha! She’s a cutie!! Folly is the same, makes lots of noise from the window but is actually pretty shy / terrified of everyone once outside! 🤔😆

@freemo hey! Not sure what’s been going on, but hope you’re ok. Really appreciate everything you do here! Sending lots of positivity your way, make sure you look after yourself! Folly is offering a hug 🐶

@KemiMDRad Hi there! I'm not a radiologist but before my PhD I qualified as a diagnostic radiographer. I will soon be starting a job in medical imaging reserach, so I'm keen to make connections with people from the world of radiography/radiology :-)

Whilst I’m hard at work, Folly is also taking her job as head of security very seriously, keeping a careful eye out the window and ensuring any passing dog walkers, delivery drivers or neighbours are properly scared away 🐶
