Should I Protect My Profile On Twitter?

No. *

* That is, unless you’re a part of the witness protection program, have serious stalker issues (either way), like to criticise your boss, only want to chat to your ‘real’ friends, don’t want your boyfriend/girlfriend, mother/father, sister/brother, aunt/uncle obsessing over your every word, really hate people or generally have something to hide. In which case, that’s cool, but maybe you’d be better off with something like MSN or a very private Facebook account, as opposed to a medium which by definition lends itself to open engagement, participation and connection. Besides, you do realise that the people you approve can just copy and paste the things you say, right? Right?
