Without going into details... I've been on the other side of the editor's desk. I've seen what women writers and scholars have to deal with when it comes to having a public-facing profile. That's all I'll say about it.

In the meantime, I'm trying to think about ways I can be a more conscientious and ethical Twitter academic. Here's one: actually do follow-backs.

On a personal level... I've said this before and I'll say this again, but I am *very* aware that I owe much of the (relative) success of my Twitter presence to being a straight white guy at an Ivy League university. I've been able to take chances on here that others haven't.

I've been thinking about this article a lot for the past day. Twitter reflects the same structures of power that we find time and time again in the academy.

I guess it makes sense if the "connectivity is good!" bullshit is what made you a billionaire.

There's no principle here, other than to say whatever he needs to say at any given moment to maximize power and wealth. Predatory in the exact same way Trump and the GOP are predatory.

I shudder to think of just how toxic American imperial nostalgia will be. We're already drowning in it and we're still at the moment top dog! (Albeit a declining one.)

I was just about to say! The Mughal stuff gets complicated because of the sectarian divide in India/Pakistan (among many, many other things), but it's a valid point.
