This paper seeks to convince historians of economics to blog and tweet. It outlines the costs and benefits of doing so, and argues that social media thoroughly alter our research process, from data gathering to writing, collaborating, sharing and hacking, showcasing history and interacting with publics. Doing history of economics for the public and in public thus raises fundamental historiographical questions on research processes and audiences.
