Amongst the many petition tracking sites (which help to avoid the actual site crashing), this is quite a good one, as it puts the constituencies in order of how many signatures they have. Proud to see that Cambridge is third. https://t.co/59rVx02Weo #RevokeArt50Now

La matemática Karen Keskulla Uhlenbeck (1942) ha ganado el Premio Abel por sus aportaciones en análisis, geometría y física matemática. Es la primera mujer en conseguirlo. ¡Enhorabuena!
Un gran referente. Nos hablaba de ella Elena Vazquez Abal https://t.co/u3cqdbnvsW

Homophobia cannot be allowed to influence education. Queer kids have the right to grow up knowing they are loved unconditionally.

This feels like a creeping return to Section 28

Congratulations to Annales Henri Lebesgue for publishing its first ten articles today, which look (to my non-expert eye) of a very high standard. Free to read, free to publish in. I certainly intend to submit here when I have something suitable. https://t.co/dal5IBdOOc

Colleagues: these authors (https://t.co/D6eQHVOjXw) suggest using the term "excluded identities" in STEM fields instead of "underrepresented minorities". I definitely agree EI is better than UR, but do you like EI better than the term "marginalized populations/groups"?

Today I was figuring out how to successfully put emoji into equations in \latex (I'll have a cool example in my talk at @CompleNet on Monday), so I decided to take @stevenstrogatz's "dynamics of love affairs" example and make it Mario-themed.

An oldie but goodie: we had so much fun writing this Math Intelligencer article back in 2011: https://t.co/gyw8tPvipH

We presented 10 graph theory conjectures/problems that were tweetable: 180 characters or less (in 2011 Twitter-terms). All of these conjectures remain wide open! pic.twitter.com/tyCQIzZq20
