The Week in Botany
It’s not been a slow week due to workload, but rather with me limiting the work I do. Looking at the list this week I clearly need to improve how we find more general news stories on Twitter - though there has been a lot of talk about one non-Botany story on Twitter this week.
The Musk takeover of Twitter means collating the top links shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter, might become more difficult in the future. It might improve massively, but his approach to improving products for users is patchy. I’ll be surprised if the site fails like MySpace - but we’re watching to see how things develop and decide where our efforts are best spent to support botanists.
I also have a final call for anyone who wants to apply for an editor post at Botany One. The deadline is tomorrow 0900 UTC. I’ve written a post of some tips saying why we’re asking what we’re asking.
