I’ve recently spit my Twitter account into two new accounts, one private for friends and family, and one public one. When I started using twitter, it was very public orientated. Over the years though, quite a few of my friends have started using a public account for their work and a private account for discussions with friends. It felt uncomfortable replying to their private comments with my public account, and increasingly like I was mixing two separate things, so I’ve followed suit and created a public twitter account. This isn’t to say that I feel like you should never bring up anything political or difficult to behave “professionally”, but being firm and clear about where your own boundary between personal and public lies is also important. So here’s my new account- @EmmaFalconerArt
