#iamabiologist: when biologists take over twitter
On the Friday of Biology Week, we invite all biologists to share photos of them in action, as part of our annual #iamabiologist campaign
From anthropologists to zoologists, we want to fill twitter full of photos of bioscientists changing the world. Post your photo of you in action as a biologist, tag @RoyalSocBio and use the hashtag #iamabiologist and we'll be sharing your photos all day, to showcase the diversity and breadth of the biosciences.
Over 500 biologists took part in our first ever Biology Week social media campaign
We launched #iamabiologist in Biology Week 2017, to fill twitter full of photos of biologists in action, to highlight the breadth of roles you can do working in bioscience.
Research groups, study groups, and lots of biologists in labs, fields and everywhere in between shared photos and tweeted using the hashtag #iamabiologist.
In total, we saw 540 posts from biologists across the world. The hashtag was used 2089 times throughout the campaign, and had a reach of almost 10 million people.
