Hey fellow ND fans,
I’ve noticed that a good amount of you are now following HI on our new Twitter and that’s awesome! I’ve also noticed that a fair number of you have also created new accounts so that you can follow HI’s updates, but for those of you who do not have Twitter accounts I want to make it known that you do not need a Twitter account to view our updates.
Whenever you visit the link you can see them, they are “open to the world” under that link.
That said, It’s nice to see other peoples updates, but make sure to keep in mind that the internet is a public space.
While Twitter’s setup eliminates most of the possibilities to “easily” chat or give away personal information, make sure to keep in mind some of the same rules used for our Message Boards.
In your updates,you should never reveal any personal information about yourself.
Personal information includes:
- real name
- address: street, city, zip (state/province is ok)
- phone number
- age, birth year
- messenger screen names
You can actually lock your Twitter profile (close it off to strangers) by going to the “Settings” tab in the Twitter toolbar and checking the box towards the bottom of the page marked “Protect my updates”(don’t worry, you will still be able to see HI’s updates)
If you do decide to use your Twitter account to post updates about your personal life, unless it is locked only to your friends, be careful about what you post.
When used properly Twitter can be a great and fun way to keep up with your friends and favorite gaming companies :)
