The only sure way to keep electronic communications from falling into the wrong hands is not to send them at all. For most people today, that’s not a practical option. But you should always consider the risks of sending a message meant for private viewing over the world’s biggest instant-publishing medium.

1 Don’t send anything by direct message you wouldn’t want public.
2 Don’t presume protected tweets will stay private.
3 Turn on Twitter’s secure connection option.
