I started a new Twitter account and deactivated my old account because I am job hunting and I don’t want prospective, future employers searching my quite unusual name (Urdu first name and Germanic/Anglo-Saxon surname) on the net and getting freaked out by my outspoken, non-PC, liberal ideas. These are my “safe spaces” [HA! I couldn’t resist ;)] and I talk about things on here I would never discuss in a workplace (politics, religion, strong environmental conservation beliefs, anti-Capitalism etc.)
Also, even though I did set my account to private, my blurb is still visible AND I didn’t realise that unlike Facebook if you set your page to private all your replies, shares/retweets, hashtags etc. are pointless. I may be GenY, but I am not as tech savvy as I should/could be. A warning that I was wasting my time would have been nice Twitter, you jerks!
Anyway, I have linked this blog onto my new Twitter account so I thought I would link my new Twitter account onto this blog. On the sidebar of this blog, there is a heading ‘FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER’ and under it a linked ‘My Tweets’ 🙂
