The #ABJPoster is an online event that is held entirely over Twitter. It aims to bring together members of the scientific research community so as to share their research, network among themselves and engage in scientific debate.
What we aim to achieve is to provide a new advanced poster contest format that uses social media to its advantage. We also wanted to give researchers an open and free platform that they can present and talk about their works while also encouraging early career researchers to take part and help build their career. Twitter seemed the most suited of the social media platforms as it is common among most professionals over many scopes for professional purposes unlike other social media platforms such as Facebook. The limits of Twitter discussion to 280 characters allows the participants to be brief and to the point of their work.
