Twitter Disassociative Personality Disorder

Do you tweet? Happy to follow you – with all my handles.

See – I have multiple Twitter personalities. Well, they are all pretty much the same thing…I just can’t decide. Of course, I was way late to the party having started tweeting a few months ago. Now one @privacyqueenK is starting to get followers, but turns out people confuse me with @privacyqueen. So I went on a journey to find one that was uniquely me. I already knew that @kjustk was not available and many people confuse that with me. Understandably as I have multiple emails with kjustk@something and license plates in multiple states with KJUSTK…but the twitter is not me.

@RedneckPrivacy was my next attempt. now THAT is me. I’m a redneck born and bred and I wear purple cowboy boots to work ¬†silver ones, too – and ivory ones. They rock. Turns out that professionally, my colleagues don’t like referencing that twitter handle. The only people who don’t like being called a redneck are those who are not a redneck. Rednecks love it.

So okay, I am now on to @heartofprivacy and I am committing to it as evidenced by the blog with two entries. Ha.

But I don’t want to send out notices yet again that I am switching twitter handles. This will be a journey to resolving my disorder. Thank you for joining me. Oh – and follow me @heartofprivacy

at the Heart of Privacy

Privacy is increasingly becoming more important to the average person, but we do not live in a world that values individual privacy. Technology makes the idea of privacy even more incredulous. To effectively create and to maintain privacy for individuals, we need people, governments, and businesses to work together. There are many professionals out here who claim to advocate for and protect the rights of individuals, but nothing truly replaces awareness and education. The only person who can actively protect your privacy is you. Yes, those who have the technology and wherewithal to circumvent the steps you put in place will always take advantage of their capabilities – sometimes, rightly so. But until you care about your own privacy and affirmatively take action to protect that privacy, you cannot expect others to do it for you.

I am not a scholar.

I am simply a person who has found her way into privacy as a career field and found it a natural fit. Perhaps in this blog, I can manage to keep sharing my own thoughts and opinions- and perhaps someone will find it useful.
