Be Great and Curate! Tips and Outcomes from an @WeAreRLadies Twitter Curator (309905)

*Shannon Pileggi,  

Keywords: twitter, curator, social media

The @WomenInStat (Women in Statistics and Data Science) and @WeAreRLadies (We are R-Ladies) rotating Twitter curator accounts promote visibility of women in our field and facilitates engagement with others. Serving as a rotating curator on a Twitter account with thousands of followers may seem daunting, but it is a great opportunity to share your knowledge, connect with others with similar interests, and learn something in return. In this talk, I’ll discuss how I planned ahead for my @WeAreRLadies curation week, what happened the week of, and the good things that followed.
