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 Now, that list is already a little out of date.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).

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
