The Intercept has a fantastic write-up from front to back on how to create and maintain an anonymous Twitter account. Take special note of the warnings about leaking your identity.
A lot of folks prefer not to use social media at all, and that’s fine. For those staying completely under radar (as in, not posting anywhere), that’s no big deal.

Social media like Facebook and Twitter, for agitators and activists, can be one of the more productive battlespaces — not for the standard chest-beating and trash-talking, but for more underhanded tactics of thread takeovers, topic steering, and other fun activities.
