beerman, well that was his nick back in the day, announced the end of his LiveJournal nekomimimode blog; he points readers to his Twitter, Flickr, MAL, nico and smart.fm accounts.
To which I can fortuitously contrast against a recent post by another relative veteran, Yumeka, where she described how:
With my blog as my main representative, and things such as Twitter, Facebook, MyAnimeList, and other social networks as additives, these things can come together and create a unique online identity for yourself
My usage of online platforms tends towards Yumeka’s but is probably more restrictive; I prefer to keep my online persona fragmented (one for anime, others for others). MAL is used just as a listing tool and updated only maybe once or twice each quarter. Finally signed up for a Twitter account recently in a spurt of SS!AB solidarity though I think of it, first and foremost, as a type of feedreader for witty remarks (brevity is indeed the soul of) and then, second, as a chat client where I mostly stick to lurking until I want to reply @someone. Which fits Option 4 in Erica’s Twitter as cocktail party metaphor.
