I recieved the following message on my talk page earlier:
Wikia Anime on Twitter
Hello, I'm Kate from the Wikia Content team. We are trying to create a WikiaAnime Twitter group, where all of the amazing wikis can come together and share their most exciting information, and hopefully get a lot of new users! To join, all you need to do is post this Twitter button and tweet list on your main page.
Then you can visit the Anime Twitter Suggestions Page and post tweets you'd like to see, with links back to your wiki.
Please share this with your other members and admins and see if it's something they'd be interested in joining!
Let me know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you there!

I'm not quite sure what to think about this right now. I've been thinking about starting a Twitter account for our wiki, but this would be different as it includes all anime wikis. I looked at the Twitter page, and, based on what I heard about it a week ago, they seem to be growing at a respectable rate. I'm not going to give my opinions just yet, but I will disuss some of the pros and cons I see with it.
The best thing about this is it could potentially bring many new users to our wiki. It's no secret that we are seriously lacking content, and there isn't much activity lately. There was more done here in the first two months than in the last six months, so any new members would be great. Anyway, another good thing: I've been looking for something to replace the activity feed on our main page, and this would fit in nicely. I think it only the shows the three most recent tweets, so it wouldn't take up too much space. This could also be a bad thing as it will mostly be showing tweets about other other anime wikis, and we already have the animanga corner to support these other wikis. I don't think we should use too much of our main page for non-HOTD material. The other issue I have is that, as more anime wikis join, it will become increasingly more difficult for our suggestions to be tweeted. They did just send a tweet about our wiki, so at least we know they'll acknowledge us.
I'd like to hear everyones thoughts and opinions on this.
