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.
