This ID is from a former member of the U.S. Navy Seals. This is interesting because it means that he beat the actual U.S. Navy Seals to Twitter!

A. General
Background: The background is has everything from cool logo to a full address, email address, phone number. Grade: A
Avatar: Has nothing to do Navy Seals. Grade: F
Bio: Lets us know he is a former Navy Seal and thus this is not an official Navy Seal ID. Grade: B
Transparency: Great job of using the background for info! Probably should add that it is not an official Navy Seal ID. Grade: B

C. Questions/Suggestions

Don’t use this ID for personal tweets and create more original content.

D. Analytic Services

Source Data is provided on the blog.

E. Conclusion

This Twitter ID is interesting because of the effort that was made in the background but the lack of original content. Also interesting that a former Navy Seal is using this handle for “unofficial business”
