Criteria for Including Feeds in List of Mathematicians on Twitter

Updated: 2017-Jul-16 01:32 UTC. Feedback: @TrueSciPhi.

On the science & art of list definition:

The science: To be listed, it is necessary for a feed to have at least 1,000 Twitter followers, at least two of whom are list members, and for the feed to belong to an individual, not to a collective (e.g., department or publication).

The rest is art: Generally, a Ph.D. in mathematics or a closely related field is required. Some exceptions to the Ph.D. rule are made, such as for students enrolled in a Ph.D. program. Users who meet the Ph.D. rule but who do not work professionally in the field of the list may be included if they tweet reasonably frequently on topics pertinent to the list field.
