Twitter can be shared/retweeted much easier and you are going to see a better spreading of messages that way. That was why I suggested we figure out a way to link the list to the twitter account automatically.

I do, and yeah, I'm okay for it to show up there. I'll set up a feed2twitter thing. I asked around a few months ago when I registered it if others in the PyPA team want access to it for the occasional manual announcement, but I agree that having a mailing list may be less controversial for the receiving parties. I didn't get many positive responses from the others anyway :)
