In this case you already have Alex tweeting updates to Twitter so it would
be a minor effort to add a realtime feed for @ardourdaw to ardour.org. At
least it might be valuable in the forum section where the people
interested in community/social can get quick a overview of recent updates
and it might increase retweats too which will increase general awareness
of ardour and the community of users.

With Google and various cookies tracking every online move we make these
days people who care about online privacy will find their own ways to stop
Twitter and the NSA from watching them and gathering analytics as they
browse the ardour.org domain.

Anyway the NSA generally only care about "muslims" and "anti semites" in
the Twitter feeds that they are monitoring so that shouldn't cause any
alarms to ring in their automated monitoring and analytics scripts from
the ardour.org domain and users.

If you do have people like that using ardour.org to disseminate
information it's highly likely that they are already being monitored so
you shouldn't feel guilty for having a Twitter feed for other harmless
internet users on the website in that case ;-)
