The reality of the post-truth world's impact on science communication...

So:
 We tweet 2each other. 
We write 4each other. 
We're considered elite. 
We don't understand our community. 
We can't reach them. 

Cool. [sarcasm]

P.S.
Post-truth is now defined by the Oxford dictionary...

ADJECTIVE

Relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief:

‘in this era of post-truth politics, it's easy to cherry-pick data and come to whatever conclusion you desire’


‘some commentators have observed that we are living in a post-truth age’
