RE: Information security on Twitter

Hi,

As I previously stated on Full-disclosure mailing list last month "We need a proper unbiased unmoderated comprehensive
directory of security researcher accounts." http://lists.grok.org.uk/pipermail/full-disclosure/2010-March/073648.html

We need the government or a security company to come up with a solution, because security researchers are increasingly 
using Twitter to disclose information and are less and less using mailing lists to communicate.

We shouldn't be complacent in the use of Twitter and how much information is being post there and which might fall into 
the hands of the bad guys before the white hat security community learn of a threat.

To me its mandatory that a sustainable list of security researcher Twitter accounts are formulated and made available 
for the public to utilize.

Andrew

While no longer managed/updated, the Security Twits list
should probably be covered in its entirety.  This was
initially maintained by Jennifer Leggio (@mediaphyter) and
picked up by Zach Lanier (@quine).  The old site is here:
http://www.security-twits.com/ and the old list is
here: http://security-twits.com/twits.php



In addition to inclusion of this list, I would recommend
following the securitytwits lists on twitter at: https://twitter.com/securitytwits/lists

Someone has made a list of information security Twitter
accounts

http://www.security-faqs.com/infosec-on-twitter


Is there more that need to be added?
