what is the perfect #twitter bio ?

the best i (https://twitter.com/osde8info) have thought of so far is:

free libre open source advocate : WARNING : i will block/report any non real people (companys or undesirables) who follow me : ALSO : http://SeeDisclaimer.com

i should probably add a link to this social media network code of practise too

what’s yours ?

“Why all bosses should follow me and ban yammer in the workplace !”

Which UK CEO is going to follow in the footsteps of Theo Paphitis and scoop the PR media coup for going public about the BMN & SMN “virus” Yammer https://www.yammer.com  !  (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-1210564/THEO-PAPHITIS-Why-ALL-bosses-I-did-ban-staff-Facebook.html)

If you haven’t even heard of Yammer https://www.yammer.com or it hasn’t spiralled out of control at your organisation – then watch out it will ! Typical 10% adoption could lead to 30% a year later, then 60% a month after that and then 90%-100%  in the following weeks !

Alternatively you could you use it as an HR tool and sack the employees who are using it the most (and instead of facebook) between 9am-5pm and even more radically promote those using it the most outside 9am-5pm ! I suspect it wont be long before Yammer blocking corporates overtake the 54% that already block facebook and twitter

Are tags the same?

Tags function the same way, except that now we support multi-word tags. For example, you can add the tag “San Francisco” without underscores or other symbol tricks, and we will recognize it as a single tag. Separate your tags with commas so we know what words belong together.
