#autisticsinacademia – A Hashtag is Born!

Check out the new hashtag! So cool

thequestioningaspie

Just over a week ago (on 26th December 2016), I started a hashtag – #autisticsinacademia

It was just an idle tweet in reply to something that someone said to me, but it has become something that is working to put autistic people involved in academia in touch with each other, to enable us to share our successes and frustrations, and to help us to be visible in, and contribute to the wider world of academia on Twitter.

It’s a fun thing, and it’s good to feel connected.

I’ve made a Storify (that you should see here) – Firstly to collect together some of the tweets that have appeared so far on the hashtag, and secondly to show what we can achieve through Twitter in terms of connection, networking and activism.

Enjoy the Storify, check out the hashtag – and join in the conversation!
