A number of folks from Elsevier have asked who I am, insinuating that it’s somehow not fair that they are posting under their real names, while I remain anonymous. Of course, these people are posting in a professional capacity (they get paid by Elsevier to do PR), while I am doing this in my spare time. However, even leaving this aside, I would simply argue that my identity is not relevant, because it does not contribute to the primary mission of my Twitter account: being funny, and spreading awareness of Elsevier’s bad behavior in the academic world.
However, I do stand by everything I have written. For now, suffice it to say, I am a practicing scientist that you probably haven’t heard of before, who is fortunate to manage a plucky little group of really smart, hard-working scientists, at an institution you probably have heard of.
