I have asked Alexandro many times over several months whether he would
put that Twitter account under the control of the AOO PPMC, rather
than treat it as his personal account.  He has not agreed to do
this,so I've made a new account which I am putting under PPMC control.
 We've had this discussion, in open, on this list.

I've done the work.  I've done the research.  I've worked this through
the community.  I've created the account.  I've applied the Apache
branding.  I've signed up other PPMC members to have access to this
account.  I've updated the website.

This is not about how many people follow the account.  The question is
purely about which account can be under PPMC control and thus be the
official account.
