I've just noticed that the previous post containing the embedded Tweet, shows the video preview image which is hidden on Twitter.
@fitheach I was going to point it out but wasn't sure whether it loaded only after I clicked through out of curiosity :D
To be fair to her, I think any competent economist must understand we are living in an attention economy & that this would change minds to the extent that people who would not go to a talk about economics given by a clothed woman, might go to a talk by a naked woman. To change minds, they first have to hear you speak.
Anyway, as CW failures go this is at least an amusing 1.
I'd found her relevant Tweet, but hadn't clicked on the "View sensitive content" at the top. I then posted the link. It wasn't until my post had been boosted that I saw the video preview being displayed. My reaction was: "where did that come from?". Had I known I would have put it behind a CW.
She has certainly got people talking. However, I'm not sure it is about the economics of Brexit.
@fitheach Yeah, I suspect what it shows above all is that people of all kinds feel powerless right now. I wonder if a Cambridge-educated eonomics professor, if that is what she is, would have felt powerless before the vote, but still, that's my take away: a desperation to try to get people's attention to talk about what matters when so often, that isn't what's happening. Clumsy at best here, but not, I think, as directly harmful as many things we have been seeing.
I'm not sure if she is "Cambridge" educated, but her Twitter bio states she is a "fellow". So, she is, at least, taking a hand in running her department. Quite senior.
