    Hi, I am new to twitter (haven’t actually signed up for it, not sure I need to) mainly because I am not interested in “tweeting” anything but mostly following a few people/orgs as it seems there are those nowadays that are going the way of tweeting rather than blogging. The thing is while I don’t claim to totally understand all about twitter it seems overkill to sign up for yet another account (yet another service that wants to create and track and monetize everything I do) when it seems most people can be followed without having to login. The thing is, it seems that one can no longer easily create rss feeds of multiple twitter streams (whatever they are called).

    This is not necessarily a straight privacy post but I thought I would post here as everyone here would hopefully appreciate the reason and possibly have alternative ideas on how to use twitter or follow multiple twitter users without unnecessarily sacrificing too much privacy.

    Any thoughts/idea would be welcome. Thx in advance

    Just sign up using a disposable email. No worries.

    Also, don't use the picture of yourself and don't use your real-name. It's a mistake that have been done by many people. Check the available security/privacy settings too and don't fill too much info about yourself.
