I invite you to two opportunities to participate in global discussions about citizen science on Twitter.

#CitSciChat
Join me, the founder and moderator of #CitSciChat, for Q&A discussions with guest panelists on Twitter about once per month. The #CitSciChat is sponsored by SciStarter. The Twitter conversations take place at designated times under the hashtag #CitSciChat. Each #CitiSciChat session brings citizen scientists, project managers, and scientists together to share ideas, knowledge, and resources. We discuss ideas, hot topics, new discoveries, papers, and projects. You are invited to join the lively conversations of #CitSciChat by following the hashtag, and follow me @CoopSciScoop. The chats started in January 2015, initially taking place the last Wednesday of every month. With over 200 people around the world engaged in most sessions. To involve people across the globe, chats take place on Wednesdays from 7-8pm in London, which is usually 2-3pm ET in USA and Thursday early morning in New Zealand, and sometimes before dawn in Australia. If you don’t use Twitter, you can follow the conversations at www.carencooper.com/citscichat
@IamCitSci
With co-sponsor SciStarter, we created the @IamCitSci Twitter handle for YOU to have a voice in citizen science. We have people rotate through using the Twitter handle for one week, as inspired from @IamSciComm and @RealScientist. Guest curators of @IamCitSci share their experiences, perspectives, and knowledge about citizen science. If you want to be a guest curator, contact me at caren@scistarter.com.
