I’ve just set up a Twitter profile and added the widget to this blog on the side-bar. This means that I can update the “twitter” section via my mobile from anywhere in the world. I was inspired by the recent ‘Back Boris’ mayoral campaign where it seemed to work well but I’ve not seen it used in this academic context before (any academic reading please comment on your use!) Later today I’ll be attending the Sexuality, Hatred and Law conference in Durham and will be twittering my way through it. I’m aiming to do this for all future conferences so you can see what I’m up to and I can provide instant comment.
