Anyone who has followed the Twitter meltdown in recent days knows that many academics are turning to substitute social media outlets. It's not a social media comparison, but I keep thinking about how quickly Enron melted into nothing.  Readers may recall the fate of other once-popular social media such as Myspace or Friendster.

As a precaution against the destruction of Twitter, I opened a Mastadon account ( but have not posted any content to-date. Obviously that could change at any moment. 

It's also possible I could change servers as the setup was a bit confusing and many of the servers other academics recommended for scholars are not taking on new users -- or there's a waiting list and I wanted to set up something right away.

Who knows?
