Well you can blame DBAKevlar.com for that! Plus the fact that I really just don’t get Twitter. If I’m gonna say something that’s of interest, it’s gonna take me a lot more time than that silly 140 character limit (so there, you’re forewarned!) So when I refused to let people know what my Twitter handle was (yes, I did have one, but only for work!), Kellyn shared that wonderful hashtag with me – #PeteWhoDoesNotTweet. 🙂
Then I changed roles at Oracle. My new role combined many years of work in both the database and Enterprise Manager arenas to being a database architect in the Database as a Service / Database Lifecycle Management group in Enterprise Manager Product Management. The job also involved being the social presence for the group, both virtually as well as physically at conferences, as well as writing whitepapers, presentations and so on to exploit database features in DBaaS / DBLM. And of course, if you are going to be the social presence for a group, then I guess you gotta tweet. So that noise you hear is me being dragged, kicking and screaming, into the TwitterSphere, and as a result I reluctantly changed the domain from petewhodoesnottweet.com to petewhodidnottweet.com. 🙂
After 22 years of working at Oracle in just about every role except Marketing and Support, I am now working as a freelance technical architect speciailising in Oracle Database technology, High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions.
