Rename diaspora* Twitter account to something else than @joindiaspora Closed Sat 22 Nov 2014 11:04PM
We will rename the account once/if a suitable name is accepted in further proposals.
As I think the main maintainer of the Twitter diaspora* account, I constantly see people confuse it with the pod joindiaspora.com.
Since this account is an official account for the project, and has no direct relation to the pod joindiaspora.com, except via history, I'm proposing renaming the account username to something else.
Changing the username will mean some people might have trouble mentioning diaspora* on Twitter. Otherwise it will have little effect.
- YES - change it to something else (follow up proposal to choose what it should be)
- NO - keep as is

cf Robin Stent's response : "From a mentioning point of view it will make much more sense for people if the name at least begins with @Diasp rather than @Join as twitter has autocomplete"

If anything, we should hand over / donate the @joindiaspora account to the podmin of jd.com (as that's what people are coming to that Twitter account for) and create a brand new Twitter account specifically relating to the project itself.

I actually think @JoinDiaspora is fine the way it is. Yeah, it can be confused for JoinDiaspora.com, but overall it describes the action of joining the platform, which itself isn't a bad thing.
