    1. ReconfigBehSci [@SciBeh]. (2021, October 1). @alexdefig against this survey data you might set actual uptake figures in France, various Canadian provinces, and Germany after the introduction of passports [Tweet]. Twitter. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1443955929985159174

    1. Dr Ellie Murray, ScD. (2021, September 19). We really need follow-up effectiveness data on the J&J one shot vaccine, but not sure what this study tells us. A short epi 101 on case-control studies & why they’re hard to interpret. 🧵/n [Tweet]. @EpiEllie. https://twitter.com/EpiEllie/status/1439587659026993152

    1. ReconfigBehSci [@SciBeh]. (2021, October 1). @alexdefig and I didn’t say we should mandate them. I simply pointed out that when considering the impact of passports on uptake we should probably look at actual uptake in response to actual mandates in addition to survey data, which may or may not translate into action, no? [Tweet]. Twitter. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1443958577173917699

    1. ReconfigBehSci [@SciBeh]. (2021, October 1). @alexdefig so, observational data has weaknesses- so does survey data, but it’s there and we should look at it. On your second point, yes, that is important, we should study that, if we have no data we can’t factor it into decision. Third is separate issue/factor to weigh. [Tweet].

    1. ReconfigBehSci [@SciBeh]. (2021, October 1). @alexdefig I get that you are against mandates. I am responding to the reasons you give for this. Those reasons should be evidence based, right? And they should also not include the claim you are trying to justify. That’s all. [Tweet]. Twitter. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1443960408105107459

    1. ReconfigBehSci [@SciBeh]. (2021, October 2). @alexdefig How could my identity possibly affect the evidence I provided and gave sources for?

    1. ReconfigBehSci [@SciBeh]. (2021, October 2). @alexdefig I literally only responded to one point in your overall argument/set of tweets.

    1. Michael Mina. (2021, September 24). Thread On tests and the media It is almost universal that any piece discussing Rapid Ag tests says “PCR is more accurate but…” But even this isn’t true. It simply depends what you want to detect.

    1. Dr. Deepti Gurdasani [@dgurdasani1]. (2021, October 30). A very disturbing read on the recent JCVI minutes released.

I would expect this from anti-vaxx groups, not a scientific committee. [Tweet]. Twitter. https://twitter.com/dgurdasani1/status/1454383106555842563

(2021, October 26). @Professologue @GYamey @ENirenberg I am not American either, but I would imagine that it is decision relevant when the costs of policies not only hit some citizens more than others, but particularly when they hit groups likely to be under-represented or even excluded from making those very decisions [Tweet].

    1. Kai Kupferschmidt. (2021, December 1). If you’re curious how likely #omicron is to have spread from South Africa or Botswana to different places, @DirkBrockmann and colleagues have done some interesting calculations based on the world aviation network from 08/2021 You can see that US seems a very likely destination https://t.co/OSnZ6ZNble [Tweet]. @kakape. https://twitter.com/kakape/status/1466107074585239568

    2. Kai Kupferschmidt. (2021, December 1). @DirkBrockmann But these kinds of models do help put into context what it means when certain countries do or do not find the the variant.

    3. Kai Kupferschmidt. (2021, December 1). @DirkBrockmann That percentage number tells you “how likely an infected passenger from South Africa or Botswana travels to each country and exits the airport there”. So: “0.9% in Germany means that out of 1000 such individuals, 9 are expected to have Germany as their final destination.” [Tweet]. @kakape. https://twitter.com/kakape/status/1466107478807097354

    1. Kaiser Health News. (2021, December 1). The number of U.S. deaths from COVID-19 has surpassed 775K.

    1. Gregg Gonsalves. (2021, November 1). The sad thing is that @MartinKulldorff and @DrJBhattacharya once were taken seriously. I’m the last person to say Tony Fauci is always right, but these two have turned into parodies of their former selves. This is just embarassing.

    3. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, November 2). @jeremy_hume personally, I’d consider it a natural, considerate, and moral response to avoid contact with others when carrying an infection that can be dangerous to others. So what seems dystopian to me, is not doing so, and not creating the social/financial conditions that allow it. [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1455499076850655235

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2022, January 24). @STWorg @FraserNelson @GrahamMedley no worse- he took Medley’s comment that Sage model the scenarios the government asks them to consider to mean that they basically set out to find the justification for what the government already wanted to do.

    1. Tom Wenseleers. (2022, January 23). @HarrySpoelstra @trvrb @CorneliusRoemer @JosetteSchoenma BA.2 has a growth rate advantage over BA.1 of ca 0.11/day. That’s quite sizeable. If it would have the same short generation time as BA.1 of 2.2 days it would imply a ca.1.3x higher transmissibility, due to higher contagiousness or immune escape.

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2022, January 4). 2/2 it seems to be being advanced as part of an argument against measures to reign in rampant infection rates (as a kind of undercutting defeater).
