“Unseen Academicals” by Terry Pratchett
If you are using Twitter and are an Academic, I highly recommend following these Twitter Accounts:
- Citizen Academic
A twitter account focusing on the positive aspects of Academia.
- Shit Academics Say
The more ironic and funny side of Academia. This person does in one or two sentences what PhD Comics does with figures.
- lol my thesis
Yup, it’s possible to sum of 3-6 years of work and up to a couple of hundred pages in one sentence.
- PhD Forum
On a more serious note, a Twitter account for mutual support and tips.
- Explorations of Style and pat thomson
Two very skilled authors/teachers who write (and tweet) about academic writing.
Of course, there are other interesting Twitter Accounts for Academics to follow. If you have a recommendation, write a comment (click on the header of this posting to have the comment field displayed).
