Twitter handles of committers

Robert Scholte-8
I had a chat with Chandra (@CGuntur) regarding exposure of Maven committers.
My experience is that most Maven users just use it, without knowing the people behind and (yes, people, not a company). Twitter has been a good way to share information regarding Maven.
To get more attention, I've added a twitter-property to my profile in the maven parent pom.
After triggering the website the team-list[1] has been expanded with a properties-column.
Not the nicest look and feel, but having my twitter handle here is more important to me.


I could add all known twitter handles, but I leave it up to every committer to add this property as well.
Simply update your profile in the maven-parent if you want.

thanks,
Robert

Re: Twitter handles of committers

Maarten Mulders
LinkedIn, GitLab, blogs, these are all rather professional references,
and I think it makes perfect sense to link those from an ASF hosted
website. But how about, let's say, Facebook, Instagram or what not?
Would we allow any kind of social links? And if not, who would be
accepting/denying it?

Just to be clear, I'm all in favour of increasing visibility, even
though I'm not a committer myself. I'm just wondering out loud
whether/where to draw the line...

Regards,

Maarten
