Resource for Top Social Work Professors on Twitter

The Internet has changed the way we find and access information, and social media has changed the way we interact with people. With more than 1.1 billion users on Facebook and over 550 million users on Twitter, social workers must understand these new forms of media and communication to better help their clients and patients. As a resource for students and professionals who are thinking about entering the field of social work, we have compiled a list of top social work professors on Twitter. To qualify for the list, the professors had to be active Twitter users who engaged with their followers. The majority of professors on the list have over 200 followers and at least 400 tweets over a sustained period of time. We definitely recommend following these professors to learn more about the field of social work and to stay current on hot topics.

Since social work has no borders, our list includes professors in the United States as well as professors and academics in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. To make it easier for you to find domestic versus international professors, we have separated our list into two sections.

We plan to update the list quarterly so that we can keep the list current with professors who are active on Twitter. If you know a professor or academic who you think should be added during our next update, please let us know at @onlinemsw.
