This will more than likely be the last post i will make on this blog. I have decided to turn off my twitter, the one associated with the blog and my personal one as well, after an incident this afternoon. I was outed by another user on my personal twitter. Apparently i am that transparent. Of course it didn’t help that when i was having my issues back a couple of months ago that i was not only doing meltdowns on the account associated to this blog, but my personal account as well It’s one thing if i out myself, and i have before on this account. But i can control that message, delete it and so on and so forth, which i did. And i can’t expect people would not eventually make links between the two, especially if they follow both accounts, which several people did. I even posted a link a couple times on my personal twitter, as well as my facebook, so expecting some people not to know would be irresponsible of me. And i know people have mentioned it to me that they know who i am, they have expressed it in confidence to me. I kept the identities separate enough that neither account followed each other, the same for my facebook page and tumblr. However it’s another thing all together when another user does it and does it in a malicious way. Keeping my identities separate was less about me, though i though it was a good idea, particularly if a potential employer were to search for social media information about it. It was more about protecting those that i talked about on this blog. Yeah some of them have read it, and knew that i was talking about them. But others don’t and should not have to be told in a way i can’t control. It’s not as if i say anything bad about anyone, but i can’t say how some would take being talked about on here. I can’t control how information would be passed on to them and how, just think about it. I know of several other twitter users that maintain separate accounts and while i suspect who they are and in some cases know, i would never think to out them, particularly over a petty dispute. So i no longer feel comfortable enough or safe enough to talk on here or on twitter in regards to anything now. And i am not sure i ever will be. I like to think this was an outlet for my feelings and that i could show others how one can recover from this and hopefully help others. But i guess i can’t. I am sorry for any of you i have letdown, i feel like i let my self down in thinking that this would be productive, apparently i was wrong.
