This week Twitter was abuzz with news from the Science Online Conference (#scio13). As the tweet above says, this annual conference began in 2007 to bring together science bloggers and their readers and has grown ever since. The schedule is chosen in an “unconference” style and facilitated through the use of a wiki. For those who aren’t familiar, an unconference is a conference in which participant feedback is used to determine topics centered around a theme. The conference is also being broadcast online and has viewing parties around the world. We’ll highlight some tweets from the conference as well as hashtags spinning off or related to conference tweets.

As you might expect, a conference that was started by science bloggers also populates the hashtag #ScienceBlogging

There was also quite a bit of chatter about data publication and #OpenAccess coming out of the conference.
