…….while we’re on the subject of Twitter, we’re trying to work out the pros and cons of ‘locking’ Twitter feeds?

More and more people seem to be protecting their privacy in this way – @tomjennings just saw an Ovum analyst talking about it – but, to my mind, it kind of obviates the whole point of Twitter being an open environment for communication.

Future Publishing’s Paul Douglas also recently commented that he was surprised to see an (unnamed) PR Agency lock their feed; surely this is a shining example of how locking your feed negates the purpose of being on Twitter; especially if it’s from a business perspective?
