Top 12 tweets of 2022 – RealScientists Nano

The 1 million impressions in 2022 had me amused so I dug deeper and brought you the best/most popular tweets of the past 12 months. You know the drill, let’s go month by month.


This tweet from Ashok Keerthi is the perfect example of collaboration and tagging the right accounts. πŸ˜‰ Ashok was our last curator of 2022 and did a fantastic job taking us on a ride of graphene nanotunnels. Do watch/listen to his podcast episode #198 of Under the Microscope.

In November Jose Ocana-Pujol took us on a wild ride around thermodynamics with a deeper dive into meta materials. This week was extra special as during my past life as a scientist I was tormented and fascinated by thermodynamics. ALSO, Jose is our Patron which we are very thankful for!

In October, Rebecca Pittkowski of University of Copenhagen, Denmark told us about decoding the chemical reactions for green energy. Her research is more on the fundamental level but she candidly answered my questions about when we can expect going 100% green. Also, this tweet is a great example of how important gifs are in reaching a wider audience.

This is a surprising one but I will take it! Honestly, this tweet ruffled feathers and in a few weeks time the male listeners went up significantly. πŸ˜€

In August one of our curators was Julien Barrier of University of Manchester, UK. Julien brought us the latest research straight from the birthplace of graphene. Also, this tweet goes to show that tagging your affiliation goes a long way in reaching a wide audience!


oh this one was fun as well. In July we had Jessica Henty-Ridilla of State Univeristy of New York, USA on the account. Jessica’s research is a lot of biology for me which goes to show that materials/nanoscience is very inclusive in combining hard (physics, chemistry, engineering) and soft (biology etc) sciences. πŸ˜›

One of my favorite content types on Realscientists Nano is pictures of our curators surroundings. In June Alexandra Brumberg shared this gorgeous view from her lab and no wonder this is the top tweet of the month. πŸ˜€

In May we had Lea Nienhaus of Florida State University, USA who told us all about the glowy things in our kitchen. I am not at all surprised that this is the top tweet of the month! πŸ˜€

In April we had delicious lasagna at nanoscale with Jarrett Dillenburger of University of Pennsylvania, USA. Just look at these gorgeous two dimensional sheets stacked together.

 The top tweet of March came from Sakiru Abiodun of University of South Carolina, USA. Fun fact, since his time on Realscientists Nano, Sakiru is Dr. Sakiru after successfully defending his PhD. Get a sneak peek into the celebration from our blogpost Congratulations Dr. Sakiru. Also, this tweet started an interesting conversation. Do check out the discussion by following the link to the tweet. πŸ˜‰


In Feb we had Chris Nicholson of Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, Germany telling us all about making movies at nanoscale. We really started with the basics and slowly went into the band energy, electrons and more. I encourage you to follow the link to the tweet to learn more.


Hurray, made it to the beginning of the year. The top tweet of Jan was welcoming a new team member – Johanna Jochum who also curated the account in 2021. Johanna went on to set up our mailing list and started a catchy β€œkeeping up with the curators” blogpost series. You can read/listen all about it in our 2022 Review episode/post.
