So, in partial summary, we should be monitoring various hashtags on Twitter, G+. etc.: Automotive, #showyourkde (and others...if so, which ones?). Here is a *partial* action plan summary based on the above:

Any update on this by chance?

Thanks @James. Would you use bit.ly to get click through stats?

Yes you can.

The use of URL-shorteners is mainly used for fitting a Tweet with a link into an appropriate character count. Keep in mind, I don't think anyone will mind a shortened Tweet coming from an official Twitter account with a custom domain (i.e. http://AaBbCcDd@kde.ly or similar).

Well, I'm not sure about the 2nd part of your question. For the 1st, however, Google+ Communities can get basic information by linking their Community Page to a Google Analytics account. As for Twitter, most organizations use the tools built into whatever URL shortening service they use (i.e. bit.ly, for example). I use bit.ly, and there are both the ability to make custom domains (a likely desire in our case) and provides analytics via real-time and reporting. I do not use Mastadon, so I'll reserve comment there.

IMHO the best course of action is either "don't answer" for trolls or "point people somewhere else bugzilla/forums/maling lists" that expect "support over twitter"

I was briefly involved in the Promo team back around 2010 (at one time I managed the KDE Community Youtube Channel and helped out with a few other things). I'll gladly help out again once the preferred methods of communication are established. To me the survey makes sense so as to try to match people with their areas of strength and interest. In the meantime I'm subscribed here and can always be reached via IRC under the nick 'ronnoc'. Time to get excited about Promo again! :)
