ASHG18 tweet summary day 1

Today was the first day of the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) 2018 conference. The official hashtag for the conference is ASHG18 on Twitter. At first I was tweeting myself and checking both the top and the latest tweets. As the day progressed I started a Google Doc to take notes during talks. I was missing some details so I was relying on the latest tweets and copy-pasting the tweet links to my notes. At some point I told myself I should simply turn this collection of tweet links into a simple blog post. So here it is for day 1. You can consider it a curated list of the ASHG18 tweets. Although it’s incomplete because it only covers the talks I went to starting from the Presidential address.

The linked tweets are frequently from Eli Robertson1 and Michael Hoffmann2, but also from other Twitter users3.

So, without further ado, here we go:

  1. Eli Robertson creates great Twitter threads, so I frequently only link to the first tweet of the thread.↩

  2. Michael Hoffmann also writes multiple tweets per talk, though you’ll have to scroll through his timeline to find all the ones related to a talk. Unless I’m missing a way to make them into a thread.↩

  3. Some with a few followers, some with many. It didn’t matter. I was just checking the latest and saving the ones I liked the most.↩
