I think it may be a good idea to formulate a promotional, pro-active Twitter account for Haiku. While we have the official account for sharing information ex-Cathedra (if you will), having an account that’s more interactive and personable may help us reach out better and connect more with those who may wish to contribute or be interested in our project.
What are the thoughts of our dev team, particularly the Haiku Inc. guardians? Having a social media presence is a key line of work for any Promotions Team, and not doing it is a little bit of malpractice on our part. But, of course, we would love to make sure everything is OK at the top-end of things, too.
This account could have any kind of role we want, but I think it should be distinct from what we have in the official account right now, with its own voice and personality. The main goal is getting people to contribute — participation is the hallmark of any community, and the bigger the net, the more mindshare we can capture.
