Gustavo & Marieke thank you, you have it covered, just adding a couple of
notes for context:
- Open Literature combined with Open Shakespeare within Open Humanities,
so this last group is the group to which this question should be directed
- Open Heritage merged with OpenGLAM http://openglam.org/
- The implicit strategy for twitter accounts is for WGs to use as they
see fit - OKI doesn't insist on a specific strategy and it's ok for
accounts to become dormant if they're not useful, although web links should
be kept updated. Saying that, it appears some more thought and explicit
strategy would be useful here, so we'll have a think (OKI and groups)
together at some point to develop together. In the meantime - suggestions
Thanks John, hope this helps :-)
