I designed #ScholarSunday to be the nerdy equivalent of #FollowFriday (read my blog post about its origins here raulpacheco.org/ScholarSunday by now, most people know how to use it and do so in the way I expected it to be used. Still, sometimes I need to tweet a few examples...
... to showcase how #ScholarSunday can be used to build community on #AcademicTwitter - the core message remains the same: using the hashtag, share which scholars you follow and the reasons you do so. You can also promote a recent publication by someone, a new project, etc.
The entire point of #ScholarSunday is to foster community by promoting the work of OTHERS.

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.

Follow @SarahTaber_bww and listen to her #FarmToTaber podcast.
I'm not up on farming or agriculture at all and she unpacks the sector deftly. You've got to admire someone who can speak clever on the social economy of poop. :)

Long Reads Sunday #37.

Some weeks, LRS is aaaaall news. This week, however, the crypto community came *hard* with research, analysis, and debate so thoughtful you’ll hope the bear market never ends. 🔥

Carve out some *serious* time for this. Thread👇
2/ On the topic of the bear market, one of the commonly held sensibilities of the past year is that while users might not be flocking to crypto, developers are. @cburniske argues here that it’s because “can’t be evil” matters more to them.
3/ Turns out, this sensibility about devs is correct. According to some amazing new research from @ElectricCapital, the number of devs working on public coins has doubled in 2 years - more than 4k devs contribute code to 2.8k projects.

I got a story to tell about these black nikes and they involve my dear friend @thecoachchris_

The internet is a powerful tool when used wisely.
About a year ago,

I had a pair of busted running shoes 😂😂😂

I’m gonna see if I can find the tweet that had em because woof those shoes were fucked up.

But I kept working out in em.

I was unemployed as most of you know so Buying new workout shoes wasn’t a priority.
Found it 😂😂😂



And I wasn’t doing it for charity, I just didn’t realize how much I needed new ones because there was so much other stuff going on.

1) #FollowFriday: I follow @SilasLapham - Matthew Teutsch - because he is committed to pathbreaking, interdisciplinary research on the 19th c. US #South. He writes for @BlkPerspectives &...
2) I can't wait to read his forthcoming book on Frank Yerby, a prolific Black novelist who wrote about the antebellum South. #Yerby was the 1st African-American to sell more than a million copies of a book. @SilasLapham
3) He is currently a @FulbrightSchlrs in Norway (European friends - he's available for lectures!), & would be wonderful addition to any college or university next year. I can attest - he's a kind friend & a wonderful colleague.

Keep up the amazing work, Matthew!

5,900 on my birthday*!! Thank you America! Let’s get to 6,000 on this #FollowFriday #FF
*not actually my birthday.
Statement regarding the “Birthday claim”

Our over zealous reporter made a mistake. Zhe was trolling randos who had been assailing xir with targeted birthday messages.

This is not who we are America. Let’s get back to the days of Obama when we couldn’t even say Happy Birthday

As its Friday, I thought it would be a good idea to do a heritage #FollowFriday here, profiling some of the people and organisations involved in and responsible for preserving and promoting Ireland's unique built heritage and traditional skills! #FF #EuropeForCulture
So my first #FF is @SPABIreland is an enthusiastic and hard working group of young professionals in the conservation sector who raise awareness and promote traditional techniques through practical workshops and site visits and also host fun events like sketching days!
If you long to live in a period property but don't have the means, @IrishLandmark rescues neglected old buildings and restores them with a new lease of life, making them available for holiday rentals. Stay in a lighthouse or a schoolhouse! irishlandmark.com #FF
