Thanks to everyone for the great advice  in response to I am a twit ’cause I don’t know whether to twitter–help me! I have decided to use Twitter in the manner suggested by Rebecca Lefler. That is I have linked a Twitter account with this blog platform. If I have done everything correctly, when I post something on this blog a notice should go out via Twitter. I have taken Ryan Killian’s suggestion that I use “@JudgeKopf” to identify myself on Twitter.

I have also considered whether I will generate original tweets or respond to tweets from others. For now, I won’t. There are several reasons for this. However, I will see how things play out. If, after I have some experience, I think that this very “short form” medium is worthwhile for original content or that it would be useful and not too time consuming to respond to others, then I might change my mind. But, for now, don’t expect a tweet from me that is anything other than a WordPress generated announcement of a post (again, assuming I configured the two systems correctly).

You’re advice was generous and helpful. I truly appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge.


PS. I have one additional request for help. If you receive an announcement of this post via Twitter, please let me know by commenting here. That way I will know whether I configured things properly.

    I’m not sure you want to be even a semi-active participant in the Twitter-verse, much as I’d like you to be. You’re limited to 140 characters per tweet. That’s going to make you the soul of brevity, but that’s also a very short message, and that limit can expose you to misinterpretation of what you said or thought you said.

    Or you’d have to spend a lot of time thinking about whether the subject matter of this message might come up in a case.

    That seems like an unnecessary risk or expenditure of time for a sitting judge.

    Or I’m being overly paranoid.

  2. “Air Force veteran, Project Manager, Systems Engineer, and writer with a rather dyspeptic view of Big Government” is never paranoid. All the best.
