Subject Gearpump Twitter Account
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2016 05:11:34 GMT
Hi All,

I formerly applied for a Gearpump Twitter account, which consists of the name *Gearpump* and
id *gearpump_io *(since gearpump has been taken). Now that Gearpump is an
Apache Incubating project, shall we

A. change our name to "Apache Gearpump" or
B. create a new id with "@ApacheGearpump" (available)

For a Twitter account, the name can be changed at any time while the id is

 After some investigation of the Twitter accounts of Apache projects, I
find that they fall into three groups in the format *name/id*

1. ApacheProject/@ApacheProject

   - Apache Flink/@ApacheFlink (
   - Apache Parquet/@ApacheParquet (
   - Apache Spark/@ApacheSpark (

They created ids after they became Apache projects.

2. ApacheProject/@Project

   - Apache Cassandra/@cassandra (
   - Apache Samza/@samzastream (

They continue to use the id before they are Apache projects but change
their names.

3. ApacheProject/@Project and ApacheProject/@ApacheProject

   - Apache Storm/@stormprocessor (
   - Apache Storm/@ApacheStorm (

Storm created a new id after becoming an Apache project, and both accounts
are active and have a quite a few followers.

What do you think ?
