4 Let’s dissect some tweets
Here’s a few examples of tweets you’re likely to see.
4.2 Good news
People love sharing good news on Twitter, usually people getting their PhD or tenure (lots of academics use R)
Several of my good friends found out they got tenure today and I'm so happy for them and I miss them so much!— Kara Woo (@kara_woo) March 27, 2019
4.3 Help and technical questions
The R community loves helping out. Here’s an example of people jumping in to answer a query. This doesn’t always happen, people are busy with their own lives, but it does happen a lot. Use the rstats hashtag to increase exposure of your R-related question.

4.5 Info sharing
The R community loves sharing information. Just about anything goes - new packages, solutions to problems, blog posts, talks, screencasts, what their kids have done to the living room, you name it. Caution, you may end up emailing yourself more resources than you’ll ever be able to consume :).
