This is basically what it was designed to be, just a firehose feed of posts from the community blog, that people can follow and get updates to from the blog straight to Twitter. The @fedora account is the account that is more personal and gets written by actual humans.

There is also the Fedora planet Twitter account that does the same firehose for planet posts.
