Though I've been Twittering a bit, I've kept most of those Tweets to personal topics and thoughts -- and have tried to steer clear of topics that directly concern Johnson & Johnson and its businesses.
It's not because I don't appreciate Twitter or that I don't want to join in some of the conversations that concern my job, my profession or Johnson & Johnson. Far from it. In fact, I think there is much to be gained by joining the Twitter party.
I guess it's because I'm a bit, well... a bit old-fashioined, and have tried to keep my personal life and beliefs from mingling too much with what I do at work. In fact, my concern about what would happen if I "crossed the streams" has often stayed my hand when I've been on my personal Twitter account.
So with that in mind, I'm giving "work Marc" a voice on Twitter through a new Twitter handle -- @JNJComm -- where I will share information about Johnson & Johnson, some thoughts on topics that concern my professional life and be on hand to help out with questions about the company.
