my thought there is that some people may want to get news from some
fedora teams but not all. We could just have a central fedora microblog
account (maybe we already do, I don't know), but it would have to only
post really big news from any particular team, or else it'd just be too
much and people would be overwhelmed with things they don't care about.
A team specific account would let us post slightly smaller news and be
confident it was going out to people who were interested. same reason we
don't just have one big Fedora mailing list :)

well sure, but I'm trying to solve the 'bus' issue here - I could just
set up an account which only I had access to and say 'hey, here it is'
but that's not very community-friendly and doesn't work well if I get
run over by a bus tomorrow :)
