Spotlight newsroom: Scientific American

Mar 11, 2014

Today's spotlight falls on the tweeting newsroom behind Scientific American (also affectionately called "SciAm"), a popular science magazine with a long history of presenting scientific information on a monthly basis to the general educated public. Albert Einstein numbers among the many scientists who have contributed articles since its creation 168 years ago, making it the oldest continuously published monthly magazine in the US.

SciAm's most highly followed journalist on Twitter is Michael Shermer, Columnist, followed by Joanne Manaster, Blogger; Mariette DiChristina, Editor in Chief; Jennifer Ouellette, Freelance Journalist and Blogger; and Carin Bondar, Blogger. Meanwhile, their most active contributor on Twitter at the moment is Danielle Lee, Blogger (the very same Danielle Lee who went toe-to-toe with a mud-slinging Biology Online solicitor last year.) And might we add, it's refreshing to see so many women at a science publication, and with such strong followings. Nice work, everyone.
