Messing around with Twitter and Facebook
I’ve been messing around with Twitter and Facebook today. I like to share what I read and write, but I don’t like that information cluttering up my main Twitter account that I use for my diary. I’ve concluded that I need to have three Twitter accounts:
@SteveRichards – this is my main Twitter account, it’s mainly a diary, but it’s also the account that I use to connect to friends, family and news. This is the account that I look at every day. This account is protected.
@SteveIsReading – I use this account to publish books and articles that I read. For example if I ‘like’ an article on Instapaper a link to it gets posted here. This account isn’t protected and I don’t follow people from it or actively track comments.
@SteveIsWriting – I use this account to publish links to the blog posts that I write at steves.seasidelife.com, like this post. Articles get posted automatically by the Word Press Jet Pack. This account isn’t protected and I don’t follow people from it or actively track comments.
@SteveRecommends – I use this account to highlight particular posts that are particularly worthy of attention, it’s a small subset of @steveisreading
Not everyone uses Twitter though, so all of these accounts now have equivalents on Facebook
facebook.com/steveisreading has everything that gets posted to @steveisreading I’ve set the privacy for the timeline to PUBLIC, but it doesn’t seem to be working
facebook.com/steveiswriting has everything that gets posted to @steveiswriting
