I'm a bit scared! But it seems like a good source of info! I've already been blocked by Lilly madigan and I haven't done anything yet😮. I was trying to post #Periodpoverty in reply to his begging comment about the price of clothes!

I’ve been thinking about joining. Can you remain anonymous?

I saw the tweet about LM asks my for clothes. Haven’t they heard of charity shops? Also surely she’d have to be giving out her address to ransoms in the internet, if she took offers up. Surely a very stupid think my to do?

I have two Twitter accounts; one just for GC tweets and one under my real name. I'm hardly using the real name one ATM.

Someone on here said gmail accounts are untraceable and I'm hoping that's true because that's what I'm relying on.

I think the safest bet, is to set up a specific email account like gmail to then use as your login on Twitter. Your email address can be traced if your account gets hacked.

There is a free web service called Blur/abine.
It creates email addresses for you that forward to your real email address, so that you can sign up to websites etc without compromising your own email address. It offers to "mask my email" if you wish when you signup to any website, and generates a random password too if you want.

I've been using it for a while and pretty happy with it!
