#ThinSectionThursday is a thing. So is #FridayFold and #MineralMonday. Today I discovered a whole new genre of science communication: geology-themed hashtags on Twitter.
If you are a geologist, or just a fan of earth science, there is literally a hashtag for you every day of the (working) week.
Hashtags are used on Twitter to link conversations and to search by subject. Creating a hashtag is as simple as placing a ‘#’ symbol in front of a word or short phrase.
