Sure, but those users ('never used any Linux operating system before')
probably aren't following Fedora on FB or Twitter, either. ;-)

We do need a way to signal to users who care about Fedora that there's
new content that may be relevant to them.

You raise a good point about content for potential users - but we need
that content, and a strategy that will reach them. How can we put that
new-user-friendly content in front of people who are poised to consider
Fedora in a venue where they're already paying attention? The @fedora
account probably isn't it.
