ÉSIS professor Stefanie Haustein published a series of blog posts about the role of Twitter in scholarly communication and tweet-based altmetrics. The posts, published during the last four weeks on the Altmetric blog, explore the What, Where, How, When and Who of academic Twitter to shed some light on the meaning of scholarly Twitter metrics and are based on a book chapter which will be published later this year. A preprint of the chapter is available on arXiv.
