Wholesome Academic Twitter Notes
Key considerations for maintaining a positive and professional academic Twitter presence.
This is self-branding. Every word reflects on you as a person and professional.
Treat Twitter friends as friends. Because they are.
This is a nuance and context desert. Broad strokes.
Promote others and amplify the useful.
This subtweet is not about you.
Whimsy is encouraged.
I like folks’ accomplishments and joys nearly every time I see them. Post those without hesitation.
Ignore, mute, block negative/bad faith comments. Give them no air.
Folks are here for different reasons – often therapeutic – and that’s okay.
Be yourself. Unless you suck. (Classical folk wisdom)
My family follows me and holds me accountable. That’s a luxury.
