Having written this blog for almost two years I’ve just discovered that I’m not the only Jobsworth out here in cyber-space. There’s another one who tweets under the name of Jobsworth. Mr J P Rangaswami, who writes a very interesting blog called “Confused of Calcutta” on the subject of information and privacy in the digital age, and tweets on a wide variety of topics, has noticed some confusion when I tweet posts on this blog, because WordTwit sends out “New @ Jobsworth …” . This has caused a (very) few people to query why he’s started tweeting about UK employment law. I tweet in my own name – @michaelscutt but blog as “Jobsworth by Michael Scutt” on employment law and on UK legal services deregulation as “There may be Trouble Ahead“. To hopefully avoid any further problems I’ve amended WordTwit to now tweet “New @ Michael Scutt at Jobsworth“.
Therefore there’s really no need for confusion. If it’s about employment law, it’s from this Jobsworth. If it’s on just about any other subject, and it’s from @jobsworth it’s the other Jobsworth. Simple.
