I’ve finally joined Twitter! I’m looking forward to seeing what I’ve been missing in the twitter world, and hopefully taking advantage of some of the benefits of twitter membership. I was considering joining for a long time. What finally tipped me over the edge was a Condé Nast Traveler article someone sent me describing how someone was able to recover their lost luggage just by tweeting the airlines.
At this time, I see this as being a hybrid account where I can share professional updates and other scientific happenings, as well as items of personal interest. We’ll see how that goes, as up to this point I have not been a particularly high-volume producer of content either professionally here on my blog or personally on private my private social media accounts.
Boringly enough, my twitter handle is @alan_krakauer
Feel free to share any advice for twitter novices, either academic or otherwise. Or I guess just tweet ‘em to me!
