I find it difficult to take seriously anyone who claims to be an educator but is not on Twitter.
By being on Twitter I do not mean having a handle you signed up for 30 weeks ago after 30 minutes of sanctioned training.
I mean being on Twitter by openly and actively sharing, questioning, conversing, reflecting, and creating.
I also mean being responsive, building up instead of blindly tearing down, detecting and cleaning falsehoods (#crapdetection), attributing others, and not indulging in fake auto-curation.
I admire your 30 years of teaching or research or other related expertise. It took a lot of hard work and a dash of good fortune to get where you are. Now see what you can learn, unlearn, and relearn in 30 months of being productive on Twitter.
