Musk is surely not a benevolent actor, but it's probable that he won't be able to wreck Twitter without wrecking the thing he really cares about: $TWTR. Picture: Shutterstock

I joined Twitter in April 2007, a year after its founding as a "microblogging platform". I didn't give much thought to my username. At first blush, Twitter looked like a place I shouldn't be seen, like a strip club, so I chose an anonymous handle that combined my middle name and birthdate: @page88. I didn't expect I'd be stuck with it for 15 years and counting.
