Using Twitter

Twitter can be useful to share quick news and help build a technical community like ours:

  • New releases
  • New blog posts
  • Useful resources
  • Announcements at public events or on mailing lists

Linaro currently has one Twitter account: LinaroOrg

LinaroOrg

LinaroOrg is our corporate Twitter account. It is industry oriented and targets decision makers and engineers. You can expect to find corporate announcements relayed there.

Who can post there:

  • The marketing team (Steve, Jennifer and Shovan) have access to post the page, however, if Linaro employees and assignees are most welcome to send their tweet suggestions to the e-mail addresses below. Given our different timezones, there should always be someone available to post your tweets.

<jennifer.castelino AT linaro DOT org> or <steve.taylor AT linaro DOT org> or <shovan.sargunam AT linaro DOT org>

Here's what we like to post on Twitter:

  • New releases and announcements (from Linaro and from other sources such as kernel.org)
  • Technical blog posts and on-line resources (from Linaro and from other sources)
  • Information related to Linaro Connect events

  • News about other technical conferences and events
  • Anything of interest for the Linaro and ARM Linux technical community (like "The kernel.org website is back").

Here's what we cannot post there

  • Minor announcements such as "Found bug xxx in project yyy". You could announce fixes for bugs that affect a wide enough audience though.
  • Announcements which haven't been made public outside Linaro
  • Negative articles (such as criticism about a specific proprietary software vendor, or a competing hardware platform).

Tweet writing tips

  • Please send your tweet to one of the marketing team members list above
  • You can mention long URLs. Twitter will shorten them automatically
  • You can put a hash sign in front of keywords, for example #Linaro or #linaroconnect, to make it easier to search for tweets matching a given topic.
  • You can even add images to your tweets. When you click on the text form to write your tweet, a small camera icon appears, allowing you to upload a picture. The picture is then uploaded and a short link to it is provided.
  • There is also an icon to add a location in to the tweet to let people know where you are tweeting from
