    Professional Twitter account

    Does anyone have this?

    I have a personal one but was thinking of having a professional one to make tweets about IT related things.

    I just use my personal one for both, but to be fair, most of my tweets are pointless blether and have very little informative content.

    I used to have a professional once when I was in Year 11, got me work experience at Microsoft so I couldn't complain!

    my personal one is a lot of rubbish too but due to my youth work I cant have my personal social media accounts open for them to view. so a seperate account is the best way for me.

    If anything, I'd use my full name for a professional account and a nickname for a personal account. That way if you go for a job and prospective employees decide to look you up on social media, they will hopefully see you professional side only.

    Was sent this earlier, seems fitting to share in this thread: BBC - Newsbeat - Warning about harming career prospects on social media

    Personal or professional?

    I like to walk a very fine line between personal/professional with mine.

    Keeps life interesting!

    You don't have time to tweet, you have paperwork to do!
