Datahole is a Twitter account I have been ‘maintaining’ for over four years. In practice I’ve simply been letting it run itself.
Last night I updated the look and feel of the account with a new avatar, header and background image. Besides these cosmetic tweaks I added two feeds from the blog of security expert Brian Krebs, specifically his categories ‘latest warnings’ and ‘the coming storm’.
Originally Datahole was supposed to detect and tweet only news about masses of private data being lost. You know the kind of story: When someone from the NHS leaves a laptop full of patient information on a train, or when a social network gets hacked and tens of thousands of unencrypted passwords are leaked all over the internet.
In practice it was hard to narrow the focus that much, so it became a feed of general interest security news.
If that sounds like the kind of thing you would like to hear more about, follow @datahole on Twitter.
