Just got an invitation from #MeWe from a friend. Some kind of #Facebook contender promising "no ads, no spyware, no BS". Never heard of them before. Who are they? Do they have any users?

My gripe with people flinging around the word "fascist" these days, meaning "nasty people I don't like" is that they are diluting the term, which is actually quite specific in political economics. They're making it hard to differentiate, for example, classic conservatives from fascists, or free market fundamentalists from fascists. They're entirely different groups with entirely different political and economic philosophies.

I need a new phone. My last phone was a #Nexus6P, but it died the infamous boot-loop death recently.

I need a budget #Android phone, not a state-of-the-art phone like the over-priced Nexus I had. Any advice welcome!

I bought my kids #MotoG5 a couple of years ago. Best phone ever for the money! Is the successor #MotoG7 something to consider?

Scholar Social

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
