> Is anyone on this list maintaining this?
I am not billable & one of the only pure marketing roles on this Dev-list. I would be
happy to maintain the ApacheFlex Twitter acct; and facilitate the messaging either as part
of a group or on my own.

> Would it be possible to get occasional updates out on twitter for people who aren't sure
about joining the ML yet but that might still have some interest?
There were several ideas proposed for: what ApacheFlex should say:
1) Commits
2) whiteboard activity
3) digest of daily activity
4) Most interesting discussions
5) ideas being passed around
6) updates on the project
7) messages about the future of Flex

In addition, I think ApacheFlex should:
1) Follow Flex developers back (build a community)
2) Recruit new volunteers for the project or the various kinds. (build a community)
3) Mention the twitter handles of those who wrote the patch; reviewed / committed code; updated
a wiki; wrote a new feature; developed an application example; wrote & set up a unit test.
(recognition of contribution)
4) respond to inquiries, forward inquiries to the appropriate party, retweet as needed. (build
a community)
5) Tweets localized messages (I think ApacheFlex knows & communicates in lots of different
languages because it is a global project) The google translator is a quick way to set these
up. (build a community)

With the help of *each* person interested in this discussion topic who write a few (5 - 10
prepared tweets) I can set up & maintain this account via hootsuite quickly.
I have already have a social media marketing campaign running in this topic area with the
@On3solutions twitter account.

Please let me know your thoughts about this.
