But aren't we supposed to do everything using only F/LOSS??

I'm a microblogging fan, and moved from Twitter to Identi.ca exclusively a
month or two ago, but I agree that crossposting would be helpful for
There are plenty of Fedora users that use Twitter, and I think we
shouldn't stay away from sites like Youtube when making videos to help get

Just my 2 cents.
I have to agree. It would be nice if we could market effectively
using only FLOSS tools talking to AGPL services. But the vast
majority of people out there waiting to be freed don't use free
services. I think we can do best in marketing by spreading word on
those services, and once we have people's attention, showing them the
equal or superior solutions found in FLOSSdom.
There's nothing wrong with preaching to the choir per se, but it's not
an effective method of spreading Fedora in new directions.
