UPDATE (Feb 2014): The mechanisms behind the scenes got crankier, other things popped up that did some of the same things, so I’ve decided to retire the @philosophyfeeds account. Check out @BrianLeiter and @philosophynws, as well as these RSS feeds if you like:
The old info:
Here’s the story: As I started to get more updates via twitter, there were some updates for academic philosophy that I could get via RSS feeds but not via twitter. So, I routed a few of these into a twitter account for my own use. Other people started finding it and using it. And so on.
If you own or manage one of these sites and have decided you don’t want me to channel your site’s updates into this twitter account any more, let me know by using the contact form.
