Scientists On Twitter: Physicists To Follow

Posted: Updated:

All that talk about the Higgs boson leave you hungry for more from the world of physics? You're in luck: we've put together a slideshow of over 30 physicists you may want to follow on Twitter.

These scientists may not be able to explain dark matter or string theory in 140 characters, but they can provide an insider's view of physics. They'll clue you in to popular physics articles, trending science hashtags, and the trials and tribulations of life in the lab. (If you're interested in the Higgs finding in particular, check out hashtag #Higgs to see all the commotion.)

Click on the hyperlinked Twitter handle in the slide to be directed to the individual physicist's Twitter profile. Be sure to check out our Neuroscientist and Biologist and Chemist Twitter lists for more great scientists on social media, and keep an eye out for our upcoming Astronomers list—there was some overlap with Physicists, but we have to give stargazers their due.

Did we miss anyone? Is there another Twitter list you want to see? Let us know in the comments, or tweet us @HuffPostScience. You can subscribe to the full Twitter list here.
