It would be great if we can expand on our previous research: Tweeting the Meeting: Investigating Twitter Activity At the 2012 AAAAI Conference. Mehrotra N, Dimov V. Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Volume 131, Issue 2, Supplement , Page AB34, February 2013. Available at: http://www.jacionline.org/article/S0091-6749(12)02805-9/fulltext
Here is the research idea: Let's attempt an analysis of the "tweeting the meeting" activity during AAAAI, ACAAI, EAACI, WAO annual meetings.
