Twitter Anthropology Edition

I’ve mentioned before that I maintain a list of anthropologists on Twitter.* Now that list has become a means of collaboratively editing a constantly updated online newspaper, thanks to the website Twitter I’m relying entirely upon Twitter to make this list from our tweets, but I strongly recommend taking a look at Digital Humanities Now which is a very nice website built around a similar concept.

What this means is that if you are on the anthropologists on twitter list and you tweet a link to a news story, you are essentially voting for that story to appear on the front page of the Twitter page. Because the list is still small, it only takes a couple of votes, but hopefully as more anthropologists join Twitter it will become even more focused on anthropological topics.

*All are welcome to join the list, but I do ask that at least 1/3rd of your tweets be in English, and that you regularly tweet about matters concerning anthropology. If you’d like to be on the list, just send me a tweet @kerim.
