You might be on to something here! But the 140 char limit would really
stifle my creativity when it comes to comments. I'd rather create
facebook pages for every package - that way we could add karma by
"liking" a package.

We could even take it a step farther and use this for marketing. Just
imagine - "Play farmville with glibc next wednesday and learn about the
great new features!", "gdb has shared a picture with you",
"NetworkManager wants to be your friend". Oh the possibilities ...

Then again, the thought of getting an email saying "Anaconda is now
following you on Twitter" also amuses me.

No worries, now I'm in the same boat :-D
