I think we could do both. Helping newbies and turning people into
veteran linuxaudio guys. But both aims needs a different approach.

Messages @linuxsound and LAA are not very well suited for 'newbies'
imho. I would even avoid them on such a centralized twitter account.

I cannot begin to describe how much I disagree with
"rebranding" what is being done to make it go big. Sure "open
source" is a nice term, and "create commons" is too, but one
should stand with what it is that your *actually doing*, and
dimming it down for people getting into the scene is not going
to improve the situation in the long run. Turning them into a
veteran linux audio guys: that's a better goal.

Restating: I disagree with the idea of "marketing" names for
what we do. People will be draw to the comunity *because* of
what we do, not because of *how we brand* what we do.

The guys from LMMS for example (as other projects), could
mention that account when posting a message.
'LMMS 0.9 is out! Grab it at http://lmms.org
#lmms #opensourceaudio @opensourceaudio'

That's not a bad idea. And its being done already to some
degree, check @linuxsound, it posts links to all LAU mails. If we
done the same for the LAA list, that might suffice for the
"Grab it here" style messages?
