I think this communication strategy is more than just marketing. Its a way of opening the deployments to further contributors. If we can make the "twitting" part of the recommended deployment methodology, then we will make our efforts more transparent.
We already have a very capable and free twitter-like-and-compatible social network called http://identi.ca where which many sugar labs members already use for sharing info. I would recommend checking out the groups !sugar, !sugarco, and !sugarlabsar and !somosazucar. I am trying to aggregate these feeds embedding them into a wordpress instance at somosazucar.org hosted in sunjammer. It would be cool if more people got interested in the possibilities of this, which is why I'm copying systems@ In particular, we have thought that an instance of status.net (the free software behind identi.ca) which is more suited for kids (bigger buttons, less options) would be *really* great. Also, 140 characters is too restraining, I would prefer 280 or 420 so that the output will display in 2 or 3 twitts on twitter. A great thing about status.net is that is a descentralized standard, and it can feed twitter, facebook and others autonomously.
