Twitter access

Hi,

I agree the "unnamed" and not having good docs (hello again, topic)
on this is bad.

There's a long history of the web presence being treated in a special
way, though. Even in the good old CVS/SVN days, you needed a special
permission bit to be able to commit to www/ doled out by sysadmin via
a murky badly-defined process. This isn't a new problem. This problem
predates most of our present-day contributors, so it's ironically a
very KDE thing.

Here's the way to fix this: kde-promo writes a documentation page on
the wiki about how the Twitter account is run and how exactly to
escalate requests related to it.


Cheers,
Eike
