There is an awful lot of fascinating information out there on the internet. But, as we have all experienced, there is also a load of old rubbish to wade through before those nuggets of wisdom come to light. And, in this age of information overload, filtering through the nonsense can be an extremely aggravating experience. Worse still is content that seems, at first glance to be reliable, but in actual fact is merely propagating uninformed opinion, urban myths or dishonest propaganda.

Social networking sites like Twitter are, in my opinion, a great first step in separating the wheat from the chaff. By following individuals who seem to know their onions, one can monitor those comments that they feel worthy of bothering the Twitter-sphere with for consistency, accuracy and relevance. Better still you might do some research to ensure that they have sufficient experience for their insights to be deemed trustworthy. When a twitterer proves themselves to be a bit of a twot, you can simply unfollow them. When a twitterer proves themselves to be a font of fantastic information you may even go out of your way to visit their twitter page every so often to see what has been getting them excited in recent times.

A few years ago I decided to go a step further and create the hashtag (#) theme “#braintweet.” Anything that I tweeted with the #braintweet label is a grain of brain-related wheat, in the form of a news article, abstract, insight or quote, that I have taken it upon myself to sort from the chaff. Usually these are newspaper articles reporting neuroscience research to the world at large and which only earn the #braintweet seal of approval when my 16 years of experience studying the brain tells me that the reporter has done their due diligence with research and has understood what they have read well enough to report it accurately, concisely and compellingly.

I had hoped that others would join me in using the #braintweet theme to label articles, blogs and reports that are worthy of this seal of approval, but it didn’t catch on and after 3 years I’ve decided to switch the tag to #neuroformed short for neuroscience-informed insights. If you wish to keep track of my thrice daily offerings you can follow me on twitter by clicking here.

Even if you steadfastly refuse to join the fad you can still visit www.twitter.com and either search for @DrJackLewis or the theme “#braintweet” to read the latest brain news filtered by a neuroscientist who has devoted his life to making the breakthroughs in neuroscience understandable and accessible for all.

In the meantime, please find below a year’s worth of #braintweet action to whet your appetite…
