This is the first entry in my “23 Things” project. I’ve been asked to write about my experience of Social Media. So, here’s the thing – be careful what you wish for – social media can be a great way of helping to spread the word about what you’ve been up to, and as an academic, that means getting your name, rank and serial number out to the masses in the hope that someone might just listen to what you say.
I’ve been tweeting for about a year now with varying degrees of success, but I thought I would share my latest experience… I was recently asked by on-line magazine TheDebrief to talk about reasons why folk might have difficulty achieving orgasm after they’ve been drinking. Interview went well, article was published and I tweeted a link, and contacted our department twitter organiser to do the same – and this is where it gets a little awkward – their tweet presented the following “Why is it more difficult to come when you’ve been drinking? An interview with DrBob”… now I don’t know about you, but to me that sounds a little bit like a personal account rather than a professional opinion…. still I guess there is really is no such thing as bad publicity, or is there… like I said, be careful what you wish for.
