EarthArXiv social media
We have been gaining loads of supporters/followers on Twitter since EarthArXiv launched not so long ago. This is great as it engages with the people, and gives exposition to their uploads.
In my opinion, one of the key elements to continue to grow and get people excited is a real, human interaction on the account, as well as promotion via “themes”, and the announcement of each accepted upload. For example, in the weeks coming, we’ll do a :series: on “successful preprint stories”, where we will be posting several examples I’ve been gathering on how various users have benefited from using preprints.
We have recently passed the milestone of 750 preprints. And once we reach 1000 uploaded preprints, I would like to hand over the Twitter responsibilities to any volunteer :)
You will see it is a fun activity which I am sure you will enjoy as much as I did.
Next, I am looking forward to continuing to support our EA community on many other topics, as an advisor or in other ways!
Please let me know if you are interested in taking over, so I can show you into it!
