I still standby my poser comment. You run the possibility of people wearing the title of "hacker" as a fashion statement, not because they had any earnest interest in the hobby or community, but because they want to seem cool like they were from The Matrix or something (potentially followed by condescending asshole behavior because they are hot shit now for being a "hacker").
Have you been on this site before? I'm pretty sure that's been a feature of the scene since the very beginning, and I daresay it continues now. Granted things got a bit better, but mostly because some people grew up, and some left. Which is still basically my point. Fresh blood seems like the last thing we should be wringing our hands about.
FYI: There is already a RHDN Twitter feed @RHDNTranslations, not to mention Spinner8's @surprise_news. I suspect the RHDN feed is not official, but that's my point. It's not like this isn't already out there. Perhaps it's easier to just leave all this up to others since they will do it anyway, but there's a risk of losing control of your own brand.
I have noticed that news posts may not have their own pages or permalinks, so perhaps there are some technical considerations around social media links and news posts?
