If it is about reading twitter entries related with KDE people,
Twitter clients (web or local) are a much better place than our
Planet. I think that a well structured set of links that redirect
Planet readers coming from different social media platforms to out
most popular contents would be a better approach than the current
feed.

I am a avid Twitter user.

What I miss though is a proper feed of KDE people I can read in a
Twitter client. I would create a Twitter list in the KDE Community
Twitter account and add a big and prominent link to the feed of that
list in several places, being the KDE planet web one of them. This way
instead of following KDE people by adding them to my followers one by
one, I would do it through the list. Those of us who use Twitter
aggregators would really appreciate it.

Thanks for asking. I appreciate that from time to time you question
the status quo and come out with these questions.

Best Regards

Agustin
