07 Feb Looking for Twitter Follower No. 2000
Just a note to point you to OJ’s Twitter feed, which you can find here. We link to posts on the blog, but there’s also added content in the form of pointers to other items that might be of interest to OJ readers.
For those of you that haven’t taken up the habit, some serious material is floating around the Twitterverse at the same time that it’s easy to avoid the dreck. If you’re looking for a starter package in international law, check out feeds from Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dan Drezner, and Foreign Policy’s Josh Keating, David Bosco, Colum Lynch and Blake Hounshell. Most major NGOs, IOs and governmental entities now have multiple feeds (the Department of State has dozens). One Twitter phenomenon: you get principals actually doing their own writing (people like Ken Roth and Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt), so it feel less filtered than other media. Fake twitter feeds supply some comedy – check out those for Kim Jong-un, Newt Gingrich, and Henry Kissinger (along with the real Andy Borowitz). OJ’s Ken Anderson has a personal feed here, as does our current guest blogger, Jens Ohlin. It’s a pretty good way to stay on top of things.
