Online acknowledgements for my PhD Thesis (of people I follow on Twitter).

September 6, 2011

On my previous post I included appendix VI of my PhD thesis. This was about how twitter and blogging in general has helped me on my research process. There were no names, here it is a list of people who are on twitter that I’m thankful to them (probably some I have forgotten). A few of them don’t really use of twitter, but they have an account, and others I would not know them and quoted them if they would have not used twitter, so this is a very informal way to say thanks, but at least I woud like to keep a record of it.

They are not necessarily in order of importance.

People I have referenced (and I never met):

@TimHarford

@Richard_Florida

@paragkhanna

@joestiglitz
