People on Twitter who spell their names all lower-case. To paraphrase Kingsley Amis on people who write onto as one word: I have no great objection, though I have found by experience that no one persistently using lower-case when typing his own name writes anything much worth reading. Amis goes on:

There seems to be a similar connection, or lack of one, between starting lines of verse with a lower-case letter and inability to write a worth-while (not worthwhile) poem.
