It is possible to re-acquire accounts from cyber squatters and inactive
accounts. I have colleagues and friends who have been successful with doing
this. I have contacts at Twitter to pursue if you strongly prefer one of
these names such as @ApacheGeronimo.

I am very experienced with managing multiple twitter accounts and with
multiple twitter "users" for an account. I do not recommend sharing a single
email identity because there are tools where you can manage your personal
twitter account and participate as a team / group member on this account
with email workflow as an on-duty user, built-in search, archiving,
scheduling (very useful) etc. This can be done with a Twitter dashboard
website such as or I use Cotweet now to manage
multiple twitter accounts with teams for other work projects. One person can
be the admin or multiples and that person invites and grants rights. I am
happy to work with you on this as time permits and provide a demo if you are

A simple guideline is good. Good to include a communication plan to scope
responsibilities / provide responses during given periods. Some etiquette
references would be helpful also. 

Are there analytics provided by the Apache URL shortener? Do you have sample
data to share?
