Don’t quote me

Is this guy unemployed, or what? How do I make my twitter not pop up in google search results of my name?

Justification offered:

I want it to be there if people know my first and last name and want to search me but not have random things I’ve said over the last nine years pop up in a google search.

Gormless dweeb. I disavow nothing I’ve said on Twitter in ten years, random or not.

    A job candidate we had in recently made the comment to me that “You don’t seem to have much of an online presence; all I found were links to some of the papers you wrote” and I just made a neutral sound in response but inside my head I was going “GOOD”

    I guess the pseudonymizing online mostly works for me.

    Of course, it could also be that she was referring to the fact that I’ve never joined the LinkedIn Collective, and while I have a FB account, I do not have a page…

    He should move to the EU and maybe their privacy policies will be applicable.
