- Have different accounts for different 'identities' (work, hobby, family/friends)
- Use twitter for only work and use facebook (or other) for family/friends
- Have just one twitter account for every aspect of life.
Being aware of and able to hold competing conceptions or approaches of use in tension, without it hindering activity is an implicit ability that undergirds the use of social media. I've been through my own digital identity soul searching, eventually deciding to stump for option 3 above. The hiatus was quite disconcerting for a while. Others will wonder what all the fuss was about, yet others will never get to the point of resolving these issues having been switched off by them completely.
