You're right in that we can't easily distinguish that from Facebook / 
Twitter / et al pages, but it's a fairly large number of people that 
either like or follow our pages. So I don't think all of the 55k / 65k 
likes / followers we have are all people interested in contributing as 
much as people who only want to know what's going on in the Linux world 
or learn about general Fedora news (e.g. updates about next release).

I think that it would be better to have a tag or some kind of manual 
filter for the CommBlog to decide whether something goes to the official 
accounts. It would be nice to have this discretion when writing posts 
with Jetpack integration.

I definitely agree, replies are different from individual tweets, and we 
definitely shouldn't be ignoring questions if that's the concern.
