As a note, it seems those names are already taken on Twitter:

@Eclipse https://twitter.com/Eclipse
@EclipseIDE: https://twitter.com/EclipseIDE

(so, it may not even be possible to use those names).

fyi, you can get twitter handles from stagnant accounts if you can present a trademark on the name.

Just need someone from Foundation to do the request.

See https://support.twitter.com/articles/15362 and https://support.twitter.com/articles/18367

I've done it myself in past and it is pretty straightforward as long as you have the trademark.

This part of the discussion is missing the key point Mike raised:

@eclipse or @eclipseIDE does not make clear whether it will be about PHP,
Java, or C. Personally, I would not follow an account that mostly talks
about C or PHP features.


Similar to what Lars said, IMHO it rather needs to be âone twitter account
per languageâ.


As Ian said, many projects have their own twitter account.

As a simple solution (w/o requiring too much additional work), I could
imagine to set up a retweet bot that (i) follows multiple Eclipse project
accounts and individuals and (ii) simply retweets their tweets - maybe if
the tweet contains a certain #hashtag.



How is that? Does not require (too much of) a human resource. Is decentralized / community driven.

This leaves us only with the questions how get the twitter handle right
for Java, PHP etc. developers.


Cheers,
Marcel

What does the splash screen say when you start up the IDE? It says
âeclipseâ. Thatâs what the millions of Eclipse users see and thatâs what
they call it. Everyone I run into whoâs outside the tight inner circle of
Eclipse calls it that. Not even IDE, just âEclipseâ.


If you want to change that perception in the market, then come up with a
new name and spend the proper marketing dollars so that everyone gets it.
Though at this point it might be easier to rename the Foundation :).

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.


We could ask them.
@Simon @Steve @Tyler @Nedelcho: would an @EclipseIDE Twitter account
focused on the "historical" Eclipse IDE seem impolite to you and your
project?
I personally believe that since other IDEs are properly branded and were
branded with another name since their inception, the confusion is not that
strong. Users make fully difference between Che, Dirigible, Orion and what
they currently still call `Eclipse`.


And even so, an underlying question is how do we remove this confusion?
Some abilities to properly market the Eclipse IDE are currently stuck by
the fact that there are other IDEs going on and that `Eclipse IDE` has
become a too generic name after 10 years. So we would need to name the
`Eclipse IDE` something else. What would be the procedure to get started?
Does it require board approval? Are there alternative way to communicate
about a product that we cannot even name on Twitter without risk of being
confusing and impolite?
