I promised that I’d link to the livetweet archive from this year’s Classical Association conference when they were available; if you are interested, you can find them here.




  1. Finally got round to looking at these, prompted by your post. Am very intrigued by the gender mix of those tweeting on the conference, or rather, the preponderance of women among those identifiable by gender.

    • Yes, I noticed this at the time; I think that, with one exception, all the livetweeters were women.

      • Yes, I too noticed this at the time! Something to do with multi-tasking maybe?!?!

        • I’m wondering about the proportion of male/female classicists on Twitter and the various career stages of those populations as well – speaking subjectively, there do seem to be more UK female classicists who tweet actively, making it more demographically likely for a livetweeter to be female.

          • There clearly is – as your previous efforts have shown – a good community of female classicists using Twitter to communicate with each other across divides of professional status, type of institution and so on. Which is an excellent thing. It might be that sense of community that reminds people to use hashtags and participate in a shared activity. Also a good thing.
