Skepticism and Social Media

Postby Esri_Allbritten » Fri Jan 21, 2011 12:29 am

Paper.li is a news aggregator that works with Twitter (They're still working on the Facebook version, which is kinda sketchy right now.) Anyway, there are quite a few Skeptic related "papers" put together from people's lists of skeptics whom they follow on Twitter. You can find them here: http://paper.li/?name=skeptic

For even more general info, you can go to http://paper.li/tag/skeptic# and read all the links that are shared on Twitter and marked with the hash tag #skeptic. I can't tell who generated this particular paper.li, and when I found it, it hadn't been updated in over a month. There's a simple fix fix for that - click the update button.

So remember, if you're on Twitter and talking about topics of interest to skeptics, type #skeptic or #skeptics somewhere in your 140 characters, so people who are looking for those topics can find it. Your Tweet might look like this, for example:

As a #skeptic, I find this site valuable. http://skepticforum.com

or

#skeptic alert! Homeopathy FAIL. http://www.rationalape.com/2011/01/homeopathy-fail.html

Thanks!
