Twitter Tweets by Erik Heels 2008-Present

Because history.

Dear Intertubes:

I’ve been on Twitter for a long time (since 2008, not 2010, which (thanks to a Twitter bug) is what my account indicates). I initially used Twitter a lot, then less, the deleted lots of Tweets, then Twitter broke, and now I care less. But I still care a little. So here are some of the Tweets I saved, to further (and possibly finally) document the Twitter-no-longer-loves-me bug.

Plus because history.

Believe it or not, Clocktower’s website design is coming up on two years old, so it’s time for a makeover.

As part of the website redesign planning process, I audited all of my brands to check that the most important ones are regiserted as word and/or logo trademarks, whichever makes the most sense. I have some trademark gaps to fill and will blog about that in the future.

The basic rule with trademarks is that you should use what you registered and register what you use.
