Academics will and/or should stay on Twitter: Opinion


In a pair of articles on Inside Higher Ed, Susan D’Agostino and Dominik Stecula argue that academics either will or should stay on Twitter in the wake of Elon Musk’s acquisition of the platform. Many academics are considering leaving Twitter for alternative platforms due to concerns about disinformation and toxic content, explains D’Agostino. However, both authors argue that the platform continues to provide an important space where academics share ideas with each other, communicate research results to and connect with the general public, and even look for academic and non-academic jobs. These factors, they explain, will likely keep academics on Twitter for the time being.
