OK and yes for the informative tweets it is a non issue, but to be
honest it is precisely that 'sales pitch' type utterance that I am
looking to get closer to.

European nonprofits cannot sell (if you do not make a profit, why you should sell something?), and this is the major difference with US based nonprofits (where sales related to your nonprofit status are accepted). So, we must be careful not to cross that thin line. For instance, suggesting a product is not a sales pitch as much as linking the product or even worse providing a price comparison with another product.

For example, and keeping it to LibreOffice branding; I would want to
try and promote sales of LibreOffice Vanilla through the MS and Apple
stores. Towards that end I hope to post once a week or so with a link
to those products.

However If I also want to do that for iOS and Android platforms
however it will have to be with Collabora Office branded binaries.

We have created the LibreOffice Technology concept to overcome this limitation: for instance, suggesting products based on the LibreOffice Technology is not a sales pitch, so tweeting about a LibreOffice Technology based product from Collabora is a rather elegant way to stay outside the trap.

Anyway - in general I understand your use of 'sales pitch', I think,
as a line not to cross.

Common sense helps a lot in this domain. Best, Italo
