If you project to your constituents by using social media and then end up with stale content
those constituents won't come back to the social media after checking it just once. I've done
one of these before, and it seems easy at first, but after a few months ... 6 months ... a
year ... it gets harder and harder to think of something fresh to tweet. You can find numerous
web sites/blogs that talk about the need to be relevant and current in social media or you
might as well not bother.

A few things I learned in my experience:
- One or two persons should be dubbed "responsible" for tweeting. If not, most community members
will expect someone else to do it and it won't get done.
- This takes a small amount of time for the tweeter, but ends up needing to be a weekly (at
the longest), repeated calendar item for them or it will fall off the radar.
- If the micro-blogging ends up only being for announcements then perhaps consider making
the description of the social media account state that. Maybe even the name.
- Tweeters will want to install a plug-in for their favorite device, email client, or anything
they use daily that is twitter friendly - allowing for fast sends.
- Tweeters will need to learn a URL link minimizer.

This would be a great outlet for things like the below -just to name a few:
- applications that implemented cTAKES,
- new papers published involving cTAKES
- General PR
perhaps we can begin by retweeting the ASFTweet: https://twitter.com/TheASF/status/321593488728788992
