"What you can do is follow this basic rule: if you are afraid of posting something with your real name, but you absolutely have to post it, keep it separate from your professional accounts. For example, if your website uses your name in the domain or has a link to your curriculum vitae, don’t post your manifesto there. Consider using a blogging platform or creating a new website with a catchy title. On Facebook, you can use the Pages tool to create a public profile that people can like, and you can post your work to it, but keep your personal Facebook profile private. Or you can have two Facebook accounts: one professional and one personal.What I’m suggesting is that you should rigidly separate personal and professional online presences."

"If the answer to all these questions is a resounding yes, tweet on! But if the medium is a bad fit for the argument, the tweet can easily be taken out of context, you’re using language that you wouldn’t use in a classroom, you’ve already consumed one or more alcoholic beverages, you’re tweeting from a triggered emotional state and/or you haven’t touched your academic writing today, then consider taking a deep breath instead of tweeting."
