I will soon cancel this site in the face of the legistation that came into play on 25 May 2018.

It isn't worth the hassle of getting this site definitively compliant to be frank - so I'll move the content to another site which is already GDPR compliant from the outset.

I'll move the blogs, photos, forum items in due course and meantime I will delete all the membership entries from the site so that no personal data is being held.

Long live Privacy and Security, eh? :-)

Current Status

We've killed off the registration part of the site AND parked for purging all previously held registration data because GDPR makes it un-economic to keep that.

The question of VOLUME on Twitter and my own response ...

Good morning - its Sunday 17th April.


I have always been conscious of the fact that the volume of tweets emanating from me - @mikejulietbravo - can sometimes be large .... too large for some people's tastes. My main profile fluctuates between 30 and 140 tweets per day, with a typical day being 70+. 

So I set up @MJB_limited as a second account very early in my tenure on the Twitter platform. It's still there ticking over and is definitively a LOW VOLUME profile to follow. I put out a MAX of a dozen tweets a day on it and usually it's far less than that. The question of what goes out on it? - typically it's a routine new tweet or two, plus anything that I think will be of specific interest to the people who follow it. Additionally, anything that is fit to become globally significant (news usually) hits that stream.

I then discovered NEWSCRED, which is (in my opinion) a great news aggregation platform and MJB Times was born with the Twitter Profile @mjbtimes. This profile frequently tweets out what I think is significant news and comment about global events. It also carries a "guest blog" (sometimes penned by me), which deals with views on matters pertaining to civilisation, politics and technology.

Then came the acquisition of the Twitter name that I would have originally used, had it been available - @briercliffe - my family name. I decided to make this the basis for my BUSINESS-specific stream and so it is - and it's in the process of being built. On it there are the topics of Social Media, Start-ups and Technology more generally - all the things that make my commercial world tick, plus any significant other news.

So - if you can stand the volume - keep (or start) following me on @mikejulietbravo - it's my ecosphere-wide moniker. But if not, the other ones are worth a follow if you want less volume OR have a specific interest in news and/or business. You'll miss quite a lot of stuff, but hey - that's probably to your advantage! :-)

Next time I'll talk about tools I use to manage the multi-threaded mass that is my on-line presence, including all the other Twitter accounts (30+) that I maintain for very specific sector interests and also those which I help other people to manage.


Ever yours online ...
