Tip to Twitterers

If you’re going to create a Twitter account, you should create an ID that effectively identifies you. Anonymity on Twitter is absurd.

If somebody “follows” me, the decision of whether to reciprocate by following them in return involves the question, “Do I know this person?” If your Twitter ID is “NWTexGOP,” if you don’t list your name and if your avatar is a cartoon elephant, how the heck do I know whether I know you or not?

So if you’re a friend or blogger or frequent commenter who is following me and I’m not following you, how about adding a little more info on your profile?

I’m just sayin’ . . .
