Abstract: To be a critically conscious librarian is to understand the inherent importance of critical dialogue on weighty social issues such as race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, class, indigeneity, disability, religious freedom, and more. Interestingly enough, however, some of the most productive and enriching of these conversations for critical librarians have been and are taking place on a social media platform that limits commentary to 140-characters or less. For many librarians seeking to engage with and learn from each other and their communities on these vital societal issues, Twitter has become a go-to digital space for initiating critical conversations, learning, listening, and growing.
