Re: [ide-dev] An EclipseIDE social media account?

Maybe confusing & impolite if trying to keep everyone happy, but there is something to be said for practicality & common usage:

With apologies, I have to ask: which Eclipse IDE are you referring to? JDT, CDT, PDT, Orion, Che,...?
Don't know for others, but I'm referring to the historical Eclipse IDE (not Che nor Orion which have some good branding and separate account on Twitter).
The Eclipse IDE is by design polyglot, so it could include news about Java, C/C++, PHP... development IMHO. Going to a finer grain would require more effort, would spread potential followers across too many channels, and would miss to highlight a key value of Eclipse IDE which is an IDE for everything.

But then surely you must see that calling the Twitter handle "@EclipseIDE" is at least confusing --- and probably impolite --- for the other IDE platforms also hosted by the Eclipse Foundation.

Naming is hard....
