Before I start on the exercise (use a twitter tool and give an overview of my experiences) I would just like to point out that in the last couple of years, after several false starts, I have begun adapting to Twitter. I have gotten over its immediacy, its brevity and have learned to let go and accept that even at 140 characters I had no chance of reading everything that could interest me.
I began embracing tools for handling multiple twitter accounts. I have three in fact:
- @DJCO599 or “business me”. Expect a lot of following InfoSec related topics, some stabs of poetry and a generally passive demeanour.
- @Danov_Valravn or “performer me”. Danov writes poetry, studies the occult, follows bands and artists and events and in general is far more exciting than David. It’s the truth. So this is still me, but the me my friends and fellow performers get to see more of, creating a distinctly separate channel.
- @FiendComputer or “My evil AI”. Fiend Computer is a reference to the “Paranoia” series of roleplay games in which a mad AI called “Friend Computer” runs the pseudo faux communist dystopia of Alpha Complex. Fiend Computer hates you all and generally just amusing trolls others (or me) when I decide to fire him up. He also LOVES CAPS.
