You don't have a brand. You have a personality.
You aren't a company. You're an individual.
@InvaderXan Some people don't have a personality, though, tbh. 😜
@InvaderXan very often I see my work-self as a brand. but this is a good reminder to stop doing that.
@neeti To be fair, during work hours in your professional life, sure, you may well have a brand. But there's still a trend of people referring to their personal interests and things as their "brand". Feels uncomfortable.
@InvaderXan Yes! Absolutely! There definitely is NOT a board of directors deciding on the tooting trajectory of this account, and even if there was nobody could ever prove it!
@bamfic Side note: Cattle are literally where that word comes from. Farmers used to put a brand on their cattle to claim ownership. Corporations now register brand names and trademarks for essentially the same reason. "This thing belongs to me so I can make money from it."
@InvaderXan now the problem isn't even corporate personhood any more, it's personal corporateness
@InvaderXan okay it's ALSO corporate personhood
I am not a company.
I am a cohort.
I am a legion.
I am a myriad.
@InvaderXan Speaking as a collective of wombats in a trench coat, my brand is “human”
