With all the recent developments in my life, Twitter has suddenly become something that I need to figure out and become a part of.
The problem? Twitter has a maximum number of allowable characters for your username. Which means that "tangerinetreehouse" is too long - I get stopped at "tangerinetreeho" (which isn't really the right image!).
Why is this a problem? Well, it's all about branding and identity. I want to keep the same name on every aspect of my online life, so that everything points back to my website, so that there's consistency in my online (or, for that matter, offline) presence, so that people recognize me.
I would love to just not join Twitter out of protest. But, like I said, I kinda sorta need to move into the Twitter world. So... how do I abbreviate my name without losing the tie to everything else?
