Scientists who are used to producing dozens of pages of jargon-filled research that a typical lay person would have no chance of understanding are distilling their words to 140 characters or less and showing off their sarcastic side on Twitter.Those engaging in research are using the new #overlyhonestmethods hashtag to, as one blog put it, explain “how experiments really get done” or just purely to make fun of themselves and their kind.
