Why I am leaving Twitter

I’m bored.

Being a female professor online with actual opinions and edges and realness means I get 1 positive connection with people like Dan Immergluck or Meg Ryerson for every 400 abusive, condescending comments accusing me of just wanting attention, trying to derail discourses, ‘splaining, and tone-policing.

I held on long enough to
try to stand with other female urbanists, to help make space for them. I think a bunch of them are now occupying that space very well.

I shall still blog when I feel like it.
