Tuesdays with Twitter

Today on Tuesdays with Twitter, we'll highlight some of the best tweets I received from academics I follow.  Not only will these messages be funny and entertaining, they will also contain proper grammar and spelling.  In other words, nothing like the student tweets I usually mock.






















OK, that's enough.  There's tons of really good stuff to check out.  I'll have a second part to this next week.

  1. Pretty good! (even if it isn't Tuesday). These are a refreshing change from the student chatter (having just sent out multiple emails about work-in-lieu-of-canceled-classes -- it's snowing again -- I suspect I may have provoked a few howls of protest myself).

    Full disclosure: I was that dissertation student (on the other hand, I didn't really *have* an advisor until after the thing was officially due. Yes, my grad program was going through a rough patch, and, at least in part consequentially, so was I).

  2. I don't know how anyone can read those student twits on an extended basis. About once a week I glance at the few in the sidebar and find myself INCENSED by the asshattery. I have decided to stop.

    The ones above are nice, refreshing change.

    1. The student tweets are never ending. I enjoy reading them but I can see how they infuriate people too.

      Maybe Tuesdays (or Monday afternoons if I screw up the posting time) I'll highlight professors' tweets and leave the students in the sidebar. Seems appropriate.

    2. Me, too! I can only read 3-4 of them before I feel myself getting hot and hotter.

  3. The student twits are worthy of the name. I absolutely *love* the prof tweets though. "Eat his heart! Gain his tenure!" I'm still chuckling about that.
