Cue 136 – Stop Calling Professors ‘Professor”

Stop Calling Professors ‘Professor’

“Social media more generally have overturned naming and credentials practices. The good side is the neutering of titles. The bad side is the elevation of popularity in their place. One’s number of social-media followers carries a great deal of weight, and on Twitter a select number of individuals are designated with blue checks to verify their identities. One possible benefit of titles is that they may signify a world where popularity does not matter so much.” – Tyler Cowen
