If You Like Volcanoes Behaving Badly, Follow Them on Twitter
We recommend checking out this cool list from WIRED if you’re looking to keep up with Volcanic activity!
Last Year I published a paper with Sally Sennert (Smithsonian-USGS; she compiles and writes the Weekly Volcanic Activity Report) and Deanne Bird (Risk Frontiers) on how social media can be used effectively to disseminate information about volcanic eruptions. One thing that was a result of this paper was a list of all the Twitter accounts I could find that were run by volcano observatories and volcano monitoring agencies. Now, that list is already a little out of date. But I thought it would be fun to show you my top 10 volcano monitoring Twitter accounts (and let me tell you, Central and South America are showing the world how it’s done).
