Where I show my work
The main place I keep all of my content is Twitter.com, no social media place is the best for any kind of content, but I do personally think Twitter may be the simplest place to gain exposure and the way content is made on the website seems suitable for this kind of content. I hope that my content brings scam awareness, helps how to spot scams and aid in internet safety practices.
