Different uses which PhD students can make of Twitter. If anyone has any they can add to the list, it would be really appreciated!

  1. Asking technical questions
  2. Asking questions relating to your institution
  3. Asking questions relating to doing a PhD
  4. Promoting events within your institution
  5. Promoting broader academic events
  6. Dialogue about research interests
  7. Dialogue about the process of doing a PhD
  8. Seeking support in your PhD
  9. Offering support in your PhD
  10. Promoting your activities

  1. Here’s three more: Looking for resources (including research sites, specific literature, potential study participants)
    Looking for venues to disseminate your research (journals, conferences, etc…)
    Funding opportunities

  2. And..Engaging with ‘the general public’ about your research topic. And..inspiration: you learn about news/topics in other areas (a positive side-effect of procrastination :-)?)
