I long thought Twitter would be a waste of time, but joined in 2012 (or actually, on 22 July 2011 in order to follow the evolving terrorist attack in Norway, but my first tweet was written half a year later). I now enjoy Twitter as a source of information and inspiration, for instance about academic writing, new publications, and updates to blogs worth reading. Moreover, formulating a tweet is actually a good exercise in forcing yourself to communicate effectively. You’ll see my latest tweets to the right.
I have compiled a list of migration researchers on Twitter, people who do research on migration and tweet about it in English.
