Due to my change from a PhD student to a postdoc, I have not attended the HUPO conference in Orlando, USA, this year. Fortunately, there were a lot of people twittering about it.

So, let’s have a look at the Twitter statistics for #HUPO2018!

However, one word before all the plots: There were only 646 Tweets this year. Next time, we can do much better!

Tweets per day. Tweets per hour between 28th September and 6th October. Give us the top tweeters. Users with ten or more tweets shown. Which were the three top retweets?

imexconsortium DO you use, or generate protein interactions as part of your work. Visit the #HUPO2018 Bioinformatics hub Monday 2-4pm (access from the poster Hall) to hear all about @imexconsortium https://t.co/LIZXYYQHHUhttps://t.co/lC9L4tZbnO @uniprot @proteomexchange https://t.co/7OelyNR6NQ 11

lukas_k I am looking forward to #HUPO2018, where I will present Matthew’s method Triqler, during the Computational Advances session TOB pm. Triqler is as well described in the preprint https://t.co/d1GfflX7Rz. Also, don’t miss the session on Bayesian Statistics at the Bioinformatics HUB 17

Actually, what was the most liked image? Great, people from my home institute! :)
Finally, words matter. Code inspiration by Neil Saunders.
