SecurityTwits Weekly Recap: 8/31/2011 – 9/06/2011

in SecurityTwits Recap

This is the weekly recap of things that happened on the SecurityTwits feed for August 31st - September 6th, 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.
