Scientists on Twitter Are Sharing the Most Interesting Facts They’ve Learned

My One Science Tweet Twitter

Scientists are some of the most brilliant minds in society, which can make what they do and what they know difficult for others to wrap their brains around. With that in mind, the Twitter hashtag #MyOneScienceTweet is encouraging scientists from all fields to share their knowledge with others. Started by entomologist Dalton Ludwick in 2017, it's turned into a fascinating thread for scientists to share facts, dispel myths, and shut down misconceptions.

Whether discussing important issues like climate change or reinforcing scientific facts around vaccines or simply having a laugh at everyday science blunders, the thread is a wealth of information. Two years later, #MyOneScienceTweet is as active as ever. For any layperson who was interested in picking the brain of a scientist, it's the perfect way to dive into the mysteries of the scientific world.

From physicists and biologist to linguists and anthropologists, there are a wide array of professionals who have chosen to represent their field publicly. Some facts will surprise you, while others will encourage you to investigate further.

Let's take a look at some of the interesting facts shared through the #MyOneScienceTweet on Twitter.

Sometimes we learn interesting scientific facts.

Often we learn more about our own behavior.

Other times scientists are breaking down common misconceptions.

And every once in awhile, they even make us laugh.
