Twitter & #DNAChat

I have always enjoyed Twitter, my only issue was being able to convey information in 280 characters, as some of you will know, I am wordy! However,  I had a review of my Twitter profile and header image and thought that I really ought to update the photo, it was a decade old. The header image had not been changed for five years.

This is the new header, which I rather like.


I had a bit of a jiggle to make sure the headshot photo didn’t obscure the wording and put it out of alignment. I have already had a direct message from someone researching a Butcher family, so that is quite nice.

The other thing that happened this week on Twitter was DNA Chat. I have taken part on this over the course of the last week.

The plan from @history_hermann is to see if he can get 10,000 comments relating to DNA discussion, using the #DNAChat and 10KChallenge. Over the course of the last week there have been a series of DNA questions posed and if you click the #DNAChat link you can read the questions and the discussions – quite fascinating. There is still time to take part.
