We invited Neil Withnell (@neilwithnell) who has just received his #LTHEchat Golden Tweeter award, to tell us what LTHEchat means to him and the significance of the award. Below is Neil’s response along with a video he created to share his story.
“I was extremely surprised, and greatly honoured, to receive the #LTHEchat Golden Tweeter Award. I always look forward to the Wednesday twitter chat as I find this to be both educational and fun. As an academic I enjoy the opportunity to engage with others and to discuss important topics that face both students and colleagues alike.
I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the organising team from September 2015 to December 2015 and hope to be part of this again, a great way to immerse yourself in the inner workings of the chats – they don’t just happen!
Always wanting to develop myself, the chats are a great resource that provide networking and research opportunities – this I see as part of my life so to be rewarded for this is truly amazing! Thank you for the award and I hope to make good use of it – see you on a Wednesday.”
We will share further #LTHEchat stories here in the future. If you are displaying your Twitter badge on your site, we would love to hear from you as well.
