Altmetric scores for bioRxiv preprints, part 2

This post is part of the series starring altmetric attention scores and bioRxiv preprints, see also the earlier post about my Twitter bot, getting the altmetric scores and part 1 of the analysis. Today I’ll have a look at the top 10% altmetric scores and how fast the preprint got that score.
