Twitter Facts – August

Another recap of all the 140 character research summaries scheduled to be posted on my Twitter page during last month. I didn’t get round to posting them all this month (apologies, it’s been a busy August) so you’ll need to check this post out to get them all! Enough likes and shares and I’ll elaborate on any of the studies you choose.
