Shedding My Social Media Skin

When I first tweeted on August 23, 2008, as @webmonkeydc it was the result of @mheerema nudging me a few times. Then, I had been working for AOL for a couple months after a four year tour at WUSA9 in DC. Coding was a daily activity as was leaning new coding techniques. Thus, my Twitter handle fit. However, there comes a time when social media skin needs to be shed.

Today, I project manage more than code. And although I try to keep aware of coding techniques, I'm falling behind fast. Since I live between Baltimore and DC, I really can't claim either. Plus, it's more valuable to be in synch with my website at richardtgarner.com than an alias. 

One shall rise. One shall fall. Today @webmonkeydc is dead and @richardtgarner has risen. Continue to enjoy the Twitter buffet.
