I discovered has a few snarls involved in OpenID access --
not the least of which is you can't *re-use* an OpenID you're using on
one account for another.

So I set up a special account that is hooked to the @fedora account.  I also entered it into HootSuite, and sent out
invitations to the whole FAS social networking team giving access to
this account.  So here's how it works now:

For new status updates -- updates that are *not* replies:
1. Login to HootSuite.
2. Select *ONLY* the "Fedora" account.
The status echoes to @fedora, which echoes to Twitter

For replies:
1. Login to HootSuite.
2. Select *ONLY* the account you're replying on, probably Twitter
The status only goes to the Twitter account where the mention

Although this does put another web service between us and,
it doesn't *restrict* us from sending messages in another way.  As
we've said repeatedly before, we'll continue to look for 100% FOSS
management apps to which we can migrate in the future.
