    An analysis of Twitter use in 116 conferences suggests that the service is used
    more extensively at PACS10 conferences (those devoted to the physics of
    elementary particles and fields) and PACS90 conferences (those devoted to
    geophysics, astronomy, and astrophysics) than at conferences in other fields of
    physics. Furthermore, Twitter is used in a qualitatively different manner. A
    possible reason for these differences is discussed.
