Twitter professors to follow today

People think social media and higher education don’t normally go hand in hand, but that’s probably because they haven’t been following these professors on Twitter. Now, the designation “professor” doesn’t necessarily mean these people teach at universities, although some do. A Twitter professor tweets or retweet educational content and engages in educational conversation with followers.

If you want to learn about online marketing, follow @cspenn. For information regarding journalism, follow @jayrosen_nyu. For nifty science education updates, you can follow Andrew Maynard @2020science.
