Abstract

Social media allows scholars to discuss and debate current affairs like never before, but these media can also hinder a productive and thoughtful academic exchange. Brent E. Sasley and Mira Sucharov examine and assess one academic’s tweets on the Israel-Gaza crisis and the questions raised over his style and approach. Scholars should be encouraged to express moral outrage, but given the speed at which Twitter operates, scholars may need to also pay particular attention to how messages are being received.
