Sometimes it’s no-one’s fault, things just didn’t work out.
Sadly, I have to announce today that I’m divorcing Twitter @bobyoung from @caretakerbob. I tried to stay united for the sake of my sanity, but have finally come to terms with reality.
The interesting lesson here is while for many people a single twitter account can work despite their varied interests, for others those interests are so unrelated they become distractions for their followers.
Most of those who share my enthusiasm for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (www.ticats.ca) do not have as much interest in my passion for technology and the future of content (www.lulu.com). While my friends who share my interest in the future of technology don’t generally care much for Canadian football,
So as of this afternoon, @caretakerbob will be exclusively focused on all things Canadian Football related, and @bobyoung will focus on technology, the future of content publishing on the Internet.
Of course this does not mean that I don’t have friends who share both interests and if you are one of them just follow both @bobyoung and @caretakerbob.
(The timing of this divorce is being driven by tonight (June 13, ‘12) being the unofficial opening of the Canadian Football league season, with a 7pm pre-season game between the Tiger-Cats and the Toronto Argonauts, about which I will be tweeting sufficiently frequently my tech friends will be tempted to hit the un-follow button.)
