It first penetrated the public consciousness in a way which has left it defined by celebrities and, particularly for academics, this is unattractive. If you want to persuade academics to use it, it’s important to illustrate that the academic twittersphere (I hate the term but have yet to come across a better one) has some quite specific characteristics.

#phdchat discussions, the feeds of high profile academics who are engaged users, the possibility for crowd-sourcing. It’s difficult to convey the point of Twitter. Therefore it’s important to convey that you really do have to try it properly (i.e. fill out your profile, add a picture, find relevant people to follow, have some conversations, explore a hashtag and do some retweeting) before you’re in a position to make an informed decision.

Professional social networks have also developed in parallel, but their use remains marginal. The fairly conservative nature of the professional milieu should be kept in mind when considering this, particularly concerning the field of research, where the coffee machine remains the place of social exchange par excellence.
