After posting, copy the link to the tweet.
Update the PGP key ¶
First, edit the key (make sure to replace FINGERPRINT):
gpg --edit-key FINGERPRINT
Get a list of user IDs and find the index of the one to assign the notation to:
Select the desired user ID (make sure to replace N):
Add a new notation:
Enter the notation (make sure to update with the link to the tweet copied above):
Save the key:
Upload the key to WKD or use the following command to upload the key to keys.openpgp.org (make sure to replace FINGERPRINT):
