Since the first communities are now live on qpixel and we are ready to share a new Q&A home with the outside world, would it be profitable to automate the process of sharing posts to Twitter and/or other social media? Monica has already made some manual “check out this question” tweets on the Codidact account, but presumably a significant amount of the work of identifying good questions to share and posting them could be automated.
Long term I envision a curation feature where high-TL / rep users can vote for certain questions to enter a Twitter posting queue, but short term maybe an algorithm that just looks for new posts with high activity would be sufficient. We could then add some appropriate fluff and push them to the Codidact Twitter account in a draft state ready for publishing (long term we’d autopost).
Is this something that would be helpful and/or desirable? Should this be part of the main Codidact account or should there be a separate “Best of Codidact” account (or should each sub-community have its own sub-account)? Is this something to go ahead and implement or should we wait until we have a higher concentration of experience immigrants from SE?
Benefits - increased visibility and engagement on the product, easy to communicate and point back to Codidact, strong Twitter communities
Downsides - not necessarily reaching the core audience we want to attract, sites are not yet ready to handle possible influx of new users on controversial questions.
