Custom Tweets and @WordPressTV

If you were at the meeting today in SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at, you know that we discussed this a bit in-chat. To open the discussion a bit, I wanted to get some more feedback here.

Currently, when we publish a post on, the Publicize connection shares our post on the WordPressTV Twitter account. That tweet gets sent out with a simple message, made up of the post title, and a shortlink back to the post, and @WordPressTV mention, like so:

Matt Mullenweg: Keynote QandA – WordCamp Europe 2015 via @WordPressTV

Depending on the length of the title, that gives us a lot of room to add custom messages before we publish. In our chat we discussed adding @WordCamp as well as hashtags for the event itself (like #WCEU) but are there any other things we should consider adding to our tweets?

What do you think would make these tweets most useful to Twitter followers?
