Did anyone notice that the Twitter widget has stopped working on the home page?

It didn't "stop working" - there just were not results returned from
the twitter-search....

Right - and was in doubt actually. I want to raise another point here
however - and I hope this doesn't come off wrong, but...

A couple days of blank space followed by 3 tweets from the
docufoundation status net account, all of which are re-tweets of
Florian's personal account and all of which have real interest only to
the German team/community, not the best use of this space IMO.

Meanwhile there is a articles out today, getting tweets, but
no play on the front page. Italo's persentaton from FOSDEM is available
and being tweeted by a few people and these are only two quick examples.

This is the international site, and of course the German specific
information has a place, but not to the exclusion of what else is going
on - and there is plenty going on - if we are open and transparent then
lets be transparent good and bad.

[sorry lost a paragraph in the last edit]

One solution would be to base the widget search on hash tags and not
just a single control account. 

If this is more openness then the SC can support then at least broaden
out the re-tweets - The docufoundation account follows zero others,
zero. I think I've seen the docufoundation account re-tweet once from an
account other then Florian's. (atually I'm not even sure about that, it
might be zero also)

IMO this is _too_ much central control over information flow for an
healthy open community.
