FreeSMUG currently is on Twitter. That is somewhat bizarre for a opensource project but understandable. Why not join identi.ca and forward that stream to Twitter? Works great, nothing would be lost, but a lot gained. Sounds like a plan?
So maybe it might be good the other way around? Create an identi.ca account and repost everything from your twitter-account? It's possible. Maybe directly in Identi.ca or via http://brdcst.it. Would that be interesting? Then FOSS friends on Identi.ca could follow freesmug there.
Maybe now, that identi.ca has been transferred to the new pump.io backend structure? Would be cool to see an opensource project use a decentralized social network.
