In the social media, I’m not the most responsive guy. People follow me, retweet me, blogroll me, and so on, but I rarely react. It’s not because I don’t care, but I just don’t have time to follow all the things that are going on.
This post is for you who have complemented me or shared my links in internet forums, liked or shared my links in Facebook, favorited or retweeted me in Twitter, included me into the blogroll of your excellent blog, or printed one of my paperlists and shoved it to the throat of their denier-friend:
Thank you. I don’t say this enough (or at all), but I do appreciate your actions to redistribute the science I have decided to include to my channels.
In Twitter, I mostly stay quiet because I want to keep my account strictly to “business” (it’s not really business as I don’t get paid for this) and I don’t want to bother people with too many chatty tweets. Almost every day there are several people who favorite and retweet my tweets in the Twitter. Thank you for that.
In Facebook, AGW observer page is somewhat quieter. But also there the likes and shares are precious, because it gives more “air-time” to the science.
And that is what I really want to show – the science. Real heroes here are the scientists. I’m just a paracite who feeds on their work. Please follow every social media account of climate scientists, climate journals and climate institutions. And show an extended middle finger to those entities that try to show climate science community in bad light.
