Adventures in Anonymity: Can’t Tweet This

One of my favorite early social media projects was PostSecret.com, where people would express their secrets via artsy postcards. I wondered what the updated version would be for the social media era, when everyone is busily constructing a false public persona.

Canttweetthis.com is a fun personal side project, made with Brian Fouhy and Ben Roth, where people are giving anonymity in order to share the thoughts they don’t want associated with their social media personas. Since launching yesterday afternoon, Canttweetthis.com has gotten over 200 entries, many banal, a few racist and a couple confessions someone is “hot.” Several have used the opportunity to sound off on advertising. Below are eight of the best entries of what’s really on the minds of the industry. Join in at Canttweetthis.com.
