Twitter and academic professionalism – for Pre-Fix at #CSAA2012

Ben’s thoughts on this were spot on, I think: 

The way that I have been using twitter lately is certainly more “risky” than previous, but only in certain ways – I’m more exposed to the risk of being “misunderstood” now that I overuse hashtags, parrot funny memes and troll misogynists, but before about the middle of this year (or when I started following @DrTeens247?? #ThanksDocTeens) I was even more at risk of being labelled, particularly labelled as “boring” which in my estimation is far less acceptable.
