During our last retreat we decided to open a twitter account. Some of us (@nlbigas, @chris_zen, @elbioc) are already using twitter, but we found useful to have one group account where we can tweet and retweet our blog posts and other things related to biomedical genomics field.
It was not easy to find a username, in the end @bbglab is our twitter account. It’s an acronym of Barcelona Biomedical Genomics Lab.
Since we started our blog one year ago we have received 2200 unique visitors with a returning rate of 37%. We think that this is a good returning rate but we want to make it easy to follow us, this is why we are opening this twitter account and also giving the option to follow us through email. And of course you can still use RSS if you prefer.
