"It’s likely not a coincidence that these articles started coming out less than 48 hrs after the release of a federal report [about] rampant abuse & sexual violence in federal prisons." @adamjohnsonNYC on that abhorrent, racist story in many major outlets. https://t.co/EhyP7MwoiY

So let me give you an example of the very real damage brexit is doing to science and how it has affected me directly. Just before Christmas, we hosted the Stockholm-London-Amsterdam-Paris conference mainly on dark matter and grav. waves here @KCL_Physics https://t.co/dPuBh06NXp

So pleased that my analysis of Science Podcasts is published in @royalsociety Open Science today! 😄

I looked at ~1000 podcasts, trying to understand who hosts them, who are the target audiences, and what science they talk about.#SciComm #OpenAccesshttps://t.co/4nTVWCTorX pic.twitter.com/JEasrfXeRx

The head of Harvard's astronomy department thinks that Oumuamua - the mysterious object that shot through our solar system in 2017- could be an alien probe. In this interview he explains why. I'd say it's a long shot, but very interesting.https://t.co/0ffLDhmAto

The "ultra-diffuse" dwarf NGC 1052-DF2 is back in the news with two new papers better-measuring the kinematics of its stars and GCs:https://t.co/CVcMdV3nCNhttps://t.co/pVaGgCbpum

I couldn't help but notice how similar DF2 is to the nearby Sagittarius dwarf

Did you know there is a new #lightpollution law in France? https://t.co/ZG7TQugQaQ

I haven't read it (it's in French), but @andhaenel says it requires public light to have ULR<1%, <3000K, and a limit of 35 lm/m^2 for the area to be lit. Congrats France!

Gözlerime yaşlar dolarak okudum. Teşekkürler @seltun18! Birkaç ay önce okulumuzdaki bir kadın prof'a özel güvenlik vermek zorunda kaldılar çünkü aynı bölümdeki bir erkek tarafından tehdit ediliyordu aylardır. Böyle ortamlarda bilim üretiyoruz. https://t.co/0lvM5JlbnA @5Harfliler

That Katelyn Ohashi performance video is extraordinary, but I think actually even more incredible is her story of accepting her body and the kind of athlete she was. This made me tear up. https://t.co/erNtJIlTYl

The Times of Israel has a piece questioning the Jewishness of three Jewish American women of color, two of whom are Black, calling it "Jewface." It's so interesting that the Israeli right is apparently *obsessed* with attacking American Jews of color. https://t.co/1zYzOh2xGq

Remember the paper "Domestic light at night and breast cancer risk: a prospective analysis of 105000 UK women in the Generations
Study" that came out last year?

Well, @mspitschan and I wrote a response to it. You can freely access it (read only) here: https://t.co/cWFmn2vRK9
