Following on from our league table of Politics departments on Twitter, we have drawn up a list of Politics academics that are also using Twitter.
LSE have already produced an excellent list of academic tweeters, which offered a useful starting place, but we wanted to look specifically at Politics academics and find out exactly how many are using Twitter.
As was pointed out in response to the department league table, some academics far outstrip their departments when it comes to number of followers and Klout. What’s more, some department Twitter accounts focus on internal, departmental matters, rather than wider impact. Therefore, individual academics have an important role to play in the dissemination of research.
We’ve put together a list of all the UK based Politics, IR and Public Policy academics that we are aware of on Twitter, but there are probably many more out there. Let us know either in the comments or on Twitter, if we’ve missed anyone.
Once we have a final list we’ll be publishing a league table of the top 50 academics based on followers. You can download a full list here (ordered alphabetically by university) or see our Twitter list.
