SecurityTwits Weekly Recap: 8/17/2011 – 8/30/2011

by kriggins on August 31, 2011

in SecurityTwits Recap

This is the weekly recap, actually two weeks this time, of things that happened on the SecurityTwits feed for August 17th - August 30th, 2011.

What's in the recap?

It contains most of the tweets/retweets made by SecurityTwits and many of the responses that carbon SecurityTwits. That of course means that if you respond to a SecurityTwits tweet make sure to include both the original poster and SecurityTwits so everybody can learn from the conversation.

The format will be original tweet/retweet left justified and then any responses indented just under that tweet.

I hope you find this helpful and I welcome suggestions on how to make these recaps even better.
