Well, I missed the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) meeting this year that just took place in New Orleans, sadly. But I followed a lot of the meeting on Twitter. Thanks to all the people who posted – it was captivating. I looked around tonight and I could not find any please that had captured all the Tweets using the meeting hashtag #ASM2015. So I went to Storify to try to make one for the meeting. I spent about two hours trying different options but kept running into glitches – in particular I discovered that Storify capped the number of Tweets one could include at 1000. Well, there were a lot more than that for the meeting. So I thought – maybe I could make one Storify for each day. This turned out to be a real pain and I gave up after trying this for a while.
The only solution I have come up with so far is to search for the hashtag directly on Twitter and then slowly, painfully, use the scrolling option and scroll through all the Tweets and then save this final compendium. This took a long long time. But it does seem to have worked.
Here is a PDF of all the Tweets.
I am sure there are better ways to do this. If anyone knows of simple ones, please share …
