Ok. There are a ton of great articles on WHY scholars should join Twitter, but most don’t offer an in-depth HOW-to.

This leads to hesitation and timidness.

So, I present a thread “You’ve joined Twitter. Now what?” #AcademicTwitter #scicomm #SoMe
First, choose a handle you’ll be happy with 5 years from now. I’d regret creating @SarahNEU2013 now that I’ve long since graduated.

#academictwitter #scitwitter #medtwitter
Next, pick a good bio photo. A professional headshot you’ve used in other places (e.g., university directory) is smart.

Because Twitter has paused verification, I see consistent photos across multiple channels as an unofficial way to confirm you are who you say you are.

If a person cares to get the right advice early in his #investing journey, outcomes will be far superior.

Where outcomes are poor or ordinary, the quality of #advice is the most likely cause.

Investors unduly worry about returns, even when quality of investing is decent. 1/5
Every step of my #investing journey, I received #GoodAdvice & #value everything I was taught. To this day, I seek constantly advice from the wiser. What I get, I freely give. As I learn, I teach. I rarely forget what was taught from day1, though my early Gurus are no more. 2/5
The early years are crucial. Starting with virtually nothing, we need to get #GoodAdvice, wise counsel & emotional support. From a few 1000s to one's first Lakh is the toughest part. From a lakh to a million is not easy either. Scale must be carefully sought. Most fail here. 3/5

A Note To Fellow #Software #Founders: Help Is Always Close At Hand
By Christian Owens (Forbes)
☝️There are tried and tested #solutions so reach out:
1.Stop thinking everything in terms of #competition
2.The world of VC is small so it’s easy to find people you need #advice from
3. #networkeffect& #globalisation: global issue for one company is always a local one for another
👉see P.Thiel “Zero to one”
4. Acknowledge that being a founder is a really, really hard thing to do with your life
☝️Avoid the Dunning-Kruger effect (the lower your ability the better you think you are at it)

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣

I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

Do not give up on a relationship unless you have exhausted all of your options.**

If you have harmed trust, do the work to rebuild it by sincerely asking the person/hearing how you can rebuild the trust; then do the work they asked of you.
(1/10)
If there is a breach of trust, it is on the person who has breached it to show care & respect in action to repair before their hurts can be addressed - most relationships can be saved.

**excluding domestic violence, sexual abuse, etc. (2/10)
There are many reasons you were attracted to this person, committed to them, (and they to you) honor it. Honor the precious time of your lives you have dedicated to one another. Understand how you experienced yourself with them in the beginning & use that as a source. (3/10)
