Hello Kingsley,

this is a good Idea but I would call this TwitterID and not WebID.
What is the connection to linked data ? I thought WebID was FOAF + SSL.
Or is WebID about promoting the use of X.509 certificates in general ?

You are using http://twitter.com/{your-twitter-handle}#this
Are you again creating URIs in other peoples namespaces ? Maybe you should
omit the hashtag in the subject alternative name.

Regards,

Michael Brunnbauer
