About This Show
WeatherHype is a podcast started by two besties who love weather and its connections to people every single day. We wanted to provide an avenue where we could talk about important weather-related stories and educate listeners in a very informal, unstructured way, all while getting a little side-tracked and having some fun too!

Episode 28: Welcome to #WxTwitter (w/ Dakota Smith)
5 days ago
So many of us use social media sites for networking and communicating with one another, and the meteorology community is no different, adopting Twitter as a platform for engagement. Using the hashtag #wxtwitter, meteorologists and weather enthusiasts discuss a myriad of subjects, including storm chasing, severe weather, and other hot-button topics. Users also hop onto #wxtwitter to share research and ideas with one another and brainstorm potential collaborations for the future. While #wxtwitter can certainly provide many positives, there are several downsides that we discuss, including the terse nature of tweeting and the "drama" that can often unfold between members in the community. Minh and Castle break it all down and bring back our good friend Dakota Smith from "The Weather Junkies" to discuss the wonderful world of #wxtwitter.
