This question is inspired by the Twitter poll at https://twitter.com/HeidiBaya/status/989856293786710017 :

Should scientists write/edit @Wikipedia  entries about projects/topics/research they are involved in? ‍

 The poll resulted in 30 votes (70% Yes, 20% No, 10% Don't know), so let's explore mechanisms by which this can (and does) actually happen.

I was the person who posed the question on twitter. I'd love to hear some discussion about this! Thanks :)

What mechanisms are you looking for? I simply wrote a page on my main topic.
Scientists/experts get no special treatment on Wikipedia, but you can participate like any other.
