When it comes to sharing new research findings with the world, Twitter has emerged as a key tool for scientists. A new study shows a way for research findings to reach even more people, by boiling them down into a Twitter-friendly graphic called a “visual abstract”. The result: Nearly three times as many clicks to read the full paper.
