Twitter Lock

Twitter Lock

Privacy – that made my mind wonder off to Twitter right away.

Everyone who follows me on Twitter knows that I have a locked account. Except for a few people, who have been following me pretty much from the beginning when the account wasn’t locked, I did approve each and every person.

There were and still are valid reason for my account to be locked. I do tweet about things that most – who am I kidding? all – people in my every-day-life would be shocked to read. If they knew it came from me.

It’s not that I am a totally different person online and offline. But the topics are a bit different. D/s is underrepresented in my every day life.

One of the brilliant things about having a locked account is that it has been a long time since I’ve gotten a dick pick in my DMs. And also the dicks following me are at a minimum.

On the other hand there are downsides. Sometime I want to respond to something someone tweeted and then I find myself realising they don’t follow me and will never see what I wrote.

Not being able to talk to people sucks.

The lock on my account gives me a sense of privacy. And so does the name Lillith.

Yes, I chose a different name and a locked account for privacy reason. I am in awe of everyone who is using their real name. Especially when it comes to D/s or any other aspect of BDSM. I’m not there yet, the society I live in isn’t there yet. And maybe I enjoy having that secret, having that privacy.

And yes, I do realise that having a pretty open blog is counterproductive. But I guess it’s just the way I feel. And Lillith Avir is probably more private than I am in Twitter.

I love Lillith, she’s part of my life. A part I can’t live without.

  1. I feel the same way about “Brigit.” She’s the real me in so many imperative ways. And without my blog, she’d have very little room to roam. I live a basically alternative reality online and in my bedroom. Outside of those places, I am in roles that would never accept (nor should they) this part of my identity.
