Another dot in the blogosphere?

My @handle

Posted on: January 13, 2017

A few times every week I get harassed, pleaded with, bribed, cajoled, threatened, insert-thesaurus-word-here. All because I was an early adopter of Twitter in 2007.

I can probably count on just one hand the number of people who have been polite about asking for my Twitter handle.

Twitter reminds me that I signed up in early 2007, but I posted my first tweet only in October that same year.

Since then I have tweeted regularly and fended off the curious, lazy, greedy, aggressive, etc. coveters of my handle.

But Twitter will not verify my account because I am not a brand or famous Ashley. Surely the labour of love over the last decade is worth that acknowledgement.
