I Tweet Museums

"I Tweet Museums" is a non-affiliated, independent initiative to encourage & support all cultural workers to tweet about museums from their personal accounts. Tweets managed by the initiative's founder: @MarkBSchlemmer / Unlike some static Storify posts, we intended for ours to grow and become more diverse as people add to the discourse. Check back often to review your favorite posts as we strive to keep them constantly relevant and up-to-date. Please tweet your input using the hashtags in the titles, or reach out to us directly @ITweetMuseums. Thanks!

I'm a museum educator and adventurer, and I tend to be found on social media chatting about museums and what happens in them (education, digital technology, accessibility). Also art and the history of it. Also shoes. But mostly that other stuff. This Storify account is mostly covering those tweets.
