Many academics have embraced social media as a tool for networking and disseminating research. Inspired by the overwhelming response we received following a call for twitter tips, we’re asking you to suggest your favourite academics on twitter.

The LSE Impact of Social Sciences blog is preparing to launch an essential, downloadable guide to tweeting for impact.

The guide is aimed at academics, researchers and education professionals who are eager to maximise their research impact with the social media tool, twitter. Including tips on getting started with tweeting, building your twitter network and disseminating research, our twitter guide will be a valuable resource for those new to social networking as well as more experienced tweeters.

The guide will be available to download for free as a PDF next week.

Before launching the guide, we want you to tell us who your favourite academic tweeters are and we’ll include a selection of them in the guide. Which academic shares the most interesting posts? Whose 140-character debates make you think? Which academic’s commentary do you follow daily?

We’ll provide a full list of all those recommended on the blog so make sure you include yourself and all those whose tweets you can’t live without.

Get in the spirit and tweet us your recommendations @LSEImpactBlog, email or leave your comments here.
