And when I say “are you on twitter” I mean “are you on academic twitter?”
It took me a while to understand twitter. But it was worth the learning curve. This guide by Dan Quintana is very helpful:
Hashtags/People/Groups to follow: @OpenAcademics, @AcademicChatter, @PhDForum, #phdchat, #ecrchat, #blackintheivory
Things I found thanks to twitter (I recommend clicking through and read the threads):
Advice on how to find a postdoc or job
Lifting your excel game to store/manage references
Tips on managing workflow and what tools are useful to help with that
Information on open science
This is just the tip of the iceberg of the things I’ve bookmarked on twitter. This is just a short post from me to show you that there is so much value in joining the academic twitter hivemind. Read the guide I’ve linked and follow the people and groups whose tweets I’ve shared here and you will be well on your way.
Are you on twitter? What resources, tools, or tips have you found on there that is worth sharing?
