Is #AcademicTwitter Over?

Anthony Michael Kreis seems to love Twitter. Or maybe he hates it.

He’s certain about one thing, though: that he “100 percent” wouldn’t have become an assistant law professor at Georgia State University without it. He has more than 62,000 followers.

Same goes for Tressie McMillan Cottom. “There’s no way that the scale of my career, and the trajectory of it, would have happened without Twitter,” said Cottom, an associate professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her follower count? Almost 240,000.

At the same time, she said, it’s been “absolutely brutal and horrible” to her as a person.
