The PORP Science Initiative

In the summer of 2018, back when we were The Party of Reason and Progress, we repurposed our secondary Twitter account into a news feed dedicated to science, science policy, and science communication. This account, @PORP_Science, is run autonomously by dedicated volunteers who are committed to sharing science with the public.

Despite having a fraction of the reach, @PORP_Science has been growing nearly as quickly as our main Twitter account, @TheOfficialPORP. We then started sharing their content on our other social media platforms, and it has since become a staple of our outreach.

We’re looking to harness the growing popularity of this volunteer-curated content to highlight the importance of effective science communication.

If your organization, or an organization you know of, would be interested in science-based partnerships that extend past social media, please feel free to contact us!
