112 papers were randomly chosen to be shared on twitter by a group with ~58k followers or to not be shared. Papers that were tweeted accumulated 4x more citations compared to non-tweeted papers over 1yr.
Meta you know, a randomised trial of paper surely describing randomised experiments
GAC because it’s the network baby, read Barabasi’s link e you know that if you look for a job and tell family and frineds you get nothing, but if tell people outside your usual creche you will find. So tell a 58,000-strong Twitter group.

gli indiani hanno costruito la strada
verso una valle inospitale, un deserto dei tartari
dove scorre il Galwan, incerto confine tra India e Cina https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galwan_River

“Let us go in together, And still your fingers on your lips, I pray. The time is out of joint—O cursèd spite, That ever I was born to set it right!”
