There is often a similar freedom in being explicitly enjoined from having an opinion.

Replying to @ayjayredux and @colindickey

Sadly, I can be forbidden, but I lack the power to forbid. I’ll work on it though!

Our goal for the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook is very much to help writers at all levels learn! https://twitter.com/mluhtala/status/728540323039817730

I took the first half of the Brit Lit survey from Jo wayyy back in the day. Her loss was huge, and hit so many so hard.

Mon May 09 14:45:37 +0000 2016

I only knew bits of this story of the brilliant work and devastating loss of Jo Roberts, an undergrad prof of mine. https://twitter.com/wynkenhimself/status/729678139291541504

Big shout-out to @Samsung for putting a “I didn’t sign up for this” link in their account verification messages, enabling email protection.

Fri May 13 21:42:37 +0000 2016

The number of people who my email address is their email address is truly staggering.

Fri May 13 21:42:40 +0000 2016

Ok, now a shout-out to @Instagram for at least including \(if not quite highlighting\) a “not me” link in your account verification messages.

Fri May 13 22:19:20 +0000 2016

And some general shouting at the Kathleen Fitzpatrick who got a new smart phone and an Instagram and who needs to learn her email address.

Tue May 17 10:56:13 +0000 2016

I will say it again: scholarly networks that are not scholar-governed cannot be assumed to share scholars’ interests and values.

Tue May 17 11:15:51 +0000 2016

Replying to @kfitz

And for-profit networks will eventually be required to find a way to be profitable.

Tue May 17 11:17:09 +0000 2016

Replying to @kfitz

If you want an alternative, support your scholarly societies and get involved in their governance.

Examples of scholar-governed networks? See @MLACommons \(http://commons\.mla\.org\) or @openlibhums \(http://openlibhums\.org\).

@lmrhody It is not possible that I was not following you. I do not understand how Twitter works. Or doesn’t, as the case may be.

Replying to @TAC_NISO

I would say that the sale to Elsevier belies a primary commitment to the social science community, which is a shame given 20+ yrs.

I was sad years ago when @-replies started going only to mutual follows. I missed the discovery. But Twitter was different then.
