Social media is a great way to keep up with the news. Well, mostly. Sometimes it can be a distraction, too. To make platforms like Twitter pay off, we are compiling a big list of the people (link at end of post) in Nanotechnology and Microtechnology (MicroNano) that you may want to follow to keep up with specific developments and trends.
Scroll through this list and then to the end for ways to contact us with your favorites.
The Story Collider @storycollider. True, personal stories about science. Podcast | Shows | Storytelling Workshops. Although this account is not MicroNano specific, it does offer some wonderful stories about science, scientists and their journeys.
NNI @NNInanonews Official Twitter feed for the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative. NNI is a MNT-EC partner.
Nature Nano @NatureNano. A journal that covers all aspects of nanoscale science and technology.
Nano Letters @NanoLetters. Fundamental research in all branches of the theory and practice of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
AZoNano @AZoNano. The latest nanotechnology news, applications, and equipment from some of the biggest companies in the nanotechnology industry.
Nanotechnology @Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology News as it Happens.
Foldscope @TeamFoldscope. We are the makers of Foldscope, the original paper microscope! Working to globally expand access to microscopy & the wonder of science. I liked their main page image so much I had to include it here (just above the listing) — it is just terrific to see so many young scientists (and older “citizen scientists”) gaining access to observe a world so often unseen.
3D Printing Industry @3dprintindustry. Leading source for #3DPrinting news & information – industry reports, business directory, jobs board, and more. Editorial Note: This publication often includes news about how #nanotechnology and #3D intersect. Hat tip to Dr. Ismail Fidan at Tennessee Tech for reminding me about this terrific resource. You can check out two recent articles on Nanomagnets here and here.
SustainableNano @SustainableNano. Tweets of the NSF Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology: nanotech, sustainability, & life in science. (Opinions our own, etc.)
The National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN) @nanomfgnet is an alliance of academic, government, and industry partners cooperating to advance nanomanufacturing in the US.

Feel free to reach out to TJ McCue on Twitter to share resources and people that we should consider for this post. He also maintains a Twitter list that you can follow: Top Nanotechnology Experts and Organizations on Twitter. If you were wondering where all the “people” were in this post, that list is growing too large to include here, so you can visit the Twitter list to find the rest.
