The un-official social media channel of choice for academics is Twitter. So, as a PhD student or ECR, if you’re not here you might not be noticed by your peers. Especially if you have yet to publish a peer review piece of research. Especially if you have not been able to attend in-person networking events (like conferences). I went through how to use Twitter as a researcher. How you might be able to better engage eminent researchers in your field. As well as using twitter to engage a wider audience for your research outputs.
