Yay!  Very exciting, thanks Paul!

Regarding an alias, I thought of these:
twitter at fp.o
socialmedia at fp.o  - multi-purpose/reusable

Someone will need to initially add it to their own individual
hootsuite account using the credentials for that twitter account. Once
that's done, said individual can create a "team" and grant others
similar status and permissions.

As far as transitioning users, my initial thoughts (for whatever
little that may be worth) would be to issue multiple tweets from
@fedora_linux properly-timed and spaced apart admonishing followers to
follow @fedora as that will be where all further tweets would emanate

An additional idea that I had would be to procure an existing or
newly-created image to serve as the twitter background when folks
visit the twitter page(s) in their browser.  Thoughts?
