Tweeting and Citation Activity for Urban Planning Faculty

Out of the approximately 1,100 planning faculty that I track, just over 300 have active Twitter accounts (about 100 users for each rank). Similar to my comparison of Google Scholar users and non-users (see:, I was interested in whether citation activity differs between Twitter users and non-users. Below are some initial results from this research which show there are differences between the two groups, with Twitter users having higher numbers of total citations as well as H-Indices.

Your comments are appreciated.
