Is your Twitter identity safe?

glossytwitterI’ve just registered another account on Twitter.  Those of you that follow me (and if you don’t, you should!) will wonder why I need another account but it just dawned on my that my twitter username is my real name and not my business name.

Up until about 5 minutes ago, there was nothing stopping someone registering MassMediaDesign with Twitter and pretending to be the offical voice of our business.

But now, if you go to http://twitter.com/MassMediaDesign you’ll see that it’s a pretty dead account but it directs you to the real me.

How many of you have registered your corporate name with Twitter?  if you haven’t, then I’d recommend it otherwise you may regret it when Twitter becomes REALLY huge!
