Twitter can help with scientific dissemination but its influence on citation impact is less clear | Impact of Social Sciences

my notes ( ? )

does researchers’ presence on Twitter influence citations to their papers?... although the relationship between tweets and citations is poor, actively participating on Twitter is a powerful way of promoting and disseminating academic outputs... an author needs three times more followers to gain only one mention more... to be or not to be on Twitter does not affect the number of citations... puts in doubt suggestions that mentions in social networks can be considered an early proxy of research impact...

1% increase of followers could produce 0.24% of citations... highlights the importance of dissemination ... part of research impact could be explained by the intensity in which a paper is spread... Twitter cannot be viewed as a citation index, but as an information-spreading network... tweets of articles ... a measure of research dissemination
