Calling All Astrotweeps – Sign up for the first part of 2016

Demitri, Niall, and I would like to thank all the astrotweeps volunteers (past, current, and future of 2015) for making the second year of this little experiment go amazingly well. We’ve enjoyed the perspectives and backgrounds that we’ve heard through this account. Also a thank you to the followers who tune in each week.

We’d like to keep this going through 2016. If you’re interested in taking over the account for a week then now’s your chance. Today we’re formally announcing the signup for the first  three months of the new year. All types of astronomers and planetary scientists from grad student to postdoc to senior scientist and all other variations are welcome. Also whether you’re a newbie to twitter, never done astrotweeps before or are a veteran from previous years, we’d love to have you participate. You can see the current schedule with open spots here and  sign up to volunteer on our registration page.
