Abstract: The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how topical distance and social distance can provide meaningful results when analysing scholars’ tweets linking to scholarly publications. To do so, we analyse the social and topical distance between tweeted information science papers and their academic tweeters. This allows us to characterize the tweets of scientific papers, the tweeting behavior of scholars, and the relationship between tweets and citations.
