Updates on the Twitter Situation

[tweetmeme]I’ve been on Twitter for nearly three years under the alias of @auer1816 (it was my email handle in college and I use it for a lot of social media accounts just out of habit). The Twitter account has been a mixture of personal and blog related items and I’ve used it anywhere from several times per hour to only a few times per week. Up to this point, that account has been associated with Epic Edits.

I figured it was time for a change and I wanted to separate my personal stuff with the photography blogging stuff. So I went ahead and made a new account for Epic Edits.

This account will post blog updates, links to photography articles around the web, photography related news items, etc. I’ll also use this account to follow other photography bloggers and hardcore link-sharers so I can keep up with the current events a little better. So if you want those types of Twitter updates, go ahead and follow @epicedits.

My personal account will be used to post random thoughts, updates on my photography-related doings, and my daily out-and-about stuff. On this account, I’ll be following personal friends and other photographers that have interesting things to say. If you’re into that kind of stuff, follow @auer1816.

I also have a joint account for FeelingNegative.com that we use to post site updates, film related links, film news, etc. Like the Epic Edits account, we’ll be following other film photography bloggers and hardcore link-sharers so we can see what’s happening out there. If you’re into that sort of thing, follow @feelingnegative.

And since I did it, feel free to share your own Twitter account(s) in the comments below… and maybe tell us what you Tweet about most of the time.

    It’s not a bad idea for us bloggers… it gives us the option to follow different sets of people in each account. Plus, some of my friends might not particularly enjoy all the photography links, and some of the blog followers might not like my personal tweets. Let me know if you get one set up for Beyond Phototips and I’ll add it to the follow list for @epicedits (while keeping @susheel_c in my personal list).

    Thanks for that. I’m now following Epic Edits and look forward to your tweets. My twitter account is @Photos4Charity. I make greetings cards from my photos and sell them to raise money for charity. Most of my tweets are about photography, with some personal / random tweets for good measure! You can see my greetings cards on my website: http://www.annewitton.org.uk

    Thanks again and best wishes,

    My Twitter stream is all over the place. I talk about photography, my job, things I’m doing in Houston and sometimes my personal ups and downs. I’m ok with being all over the place because my blog and my photoblog are both personal spaces.

    You’re spot on about that, so here are my twitter accounts.

    @BeyondPhototips – set up some time ago, but only now becoming the focus of photography related tweets. Interesting photography related finds on the net will be posted here.

    @ChennaiParkour – is for Parkour related activity, and for my bunch of Parkour / FreeRunning buddies in Chennai.

    @Susheel_c – will remain my personal tweet space, and will continue to have some of my tweets about my personal experiences with photography, parkour, web design and life in general.
