[Owasp-board] AppSecUSA Twitter Post

I have made the request that everyone using public OWASP accounts be press
certified before officially representing the organization. This is not the
first time I feel Tom has used poor judgement using official OWASP accounts.

I'm hoping to begin this initiative in January once the new board from the
current election begins their term.

Glad the tweet has been deleted.  Perhaps AppSecUSA tweets going forward
should be monitored a bit more closely for appropriate content since the
account speaks for OWASP?
