If you're taking suggestions, I'd say put the hints on their own account and automate it with RSS. This way, you don't clutter your personal account (and give double exposure to those of us who subscribe to the site with RSS and follow you on twitter)

We're working on the hints account -- right now, someone is squatting on the preferred username. I've asked Twitter to give it to us, so we'll see how that goes.

I'll look into the automation thing, too, if the experiment goes well.

Hi Rob,

I just grabbed the Twitter username << OSXHints >> and it's yours if you'd like it.

Just use Hoossuite use the RSS from the site to automatically tweet any new post on this site!

This is a great idea Rob, although I think the "-tip" suffix might be redundant. "#macosxhints" is certainly sufficient, and already descriptive enough for those [poor souls] not already familiar with the site. :)

If we can get the macosxhints user name from twitter, I'll change the hash tag, too. For now, though, I didn't want to route any more traffic in that direction :)

Ah, that makes sense - good luck with the account recovery, I know a few "celebs" have been successful at claiming back impostor accounts.
