Profs on twitter

I just thought of creating a list of academics with twitter accounts, so, if you are one and would like to be on the list, post a comment here including your twitter user name and your area (i.e.: Communication, Public Relations) as well as any other information you’d like to list.

Here, I’ll start:

Dr. Mihaela Vorvoreanu
Communication Studies: Public Relations, Emerging communication technologies
Clemson University, Department of Communication Studies

I’ll disseminate the list on PROpenMic and here.

WHY? So we can learn together about twitter in higher education.

[update: Barbara Nixon has already started a list of PR profs on twitter. Might as well put your name in both places if you teach PR. This list is for all subjects, from PR & Communication to… Mechanical Engineering.]

  9. Hey Mihaela,

    Great idea. Thanks for doing this.

    I’m @rdfrench on Twitter. My updates are protected, but I really just do that to keep them from being indexed by Google and other search engines. I’ll certainly follow all faculty and let them follow me, too.
