I ran into @Ubuntu_Ask and thought, wow, what a great idea. I got in contact with the author with the hope of making a more "official" twitter feed so people can just follow the account if they want to see the new questions and he's keen on the idea!
However the really nice name that we want is @askubuntu. Has someone on this site registered this? I started following it in the hopes that I could DM the person asking if they'd be willing to let us have the account.
- fluteflute has @Ask_Ubuntu saved but the underscore is a bummer.
- Marco Ceppi has tried contacting the person with no response.
Ideas on how we can get this name? I think Twitter has a trademark policy but I am unsure if Canonical and/or Stack Overflow have trademarked "ask ubuntu".
Namespace issues aside, we should discuss what we want in a twitter feed. I was thinking that we don't want every new question on there, perhaps a threshold (like 3) to make sure that the less-than-ideal questions don't flood the feed. Thoughts?
