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.
My personal opinion on this is that the @fedoracommunity account's
existence is justified and it makes sense to have it. Like Ryan said,
for the same reason we have @fedora_planet and @fedobot, this account
isn't necessarily a "high profile social media interest" in my eyes. I
don't think there needs to be that much strategic effort put into it,
and it's a nice option to have for anyone who wants to follow new
Community Blog posts too.
Just because it isn't being used strategically, per say, doesn't mean it
has to be removed or disabled altogether, right? By that logic, we
shouldn't have the other pre-existing Fedora accounts either.
In short, I'm +1 to keeping things the way they are with
@fedoracommunity and putting our main focus into the official @fedora
handles we have for curated content. I see no issue with keeping the
simple post-to-social-media accounts up.
