I would like for high rep users to be able to recommend posts for tweeting through the site's twitter account. Call this a "positive recommendation" if you will.
I would also like for high rep users to "flag" a question to prevent it from being tweeted. And we could call this a "negative recommendation."
This question on Programmers led to some follow up commentary within The Whiteboard. The question itself is a "meh" question that could have been tolerated, but then it got way too much publicity from being tweeted. The problem is that this isn't an exception. This pattern has repeated itself before, and this request is to help control the damage meh questions do to a site's reputation when they get a lot of visibility.
How it might work...
What I'm envisioning is two more icons within the share panel.
The first would recommend the question for tweeting.
The second would count as a recommendation against tweeting the question.
If there aren't any positive recommendations, then the [existing tweet selection algorithm] would apply but including a check to skip questions with recommendations against them.
Once a positively recommended question is tweeted, it would be removed from further tweet consideration. Just like it is handled currently.
Improve quality of what is tweeted - active communities can curate for the best and make sure it gets highlighted.
Make selection more human and less automated (therefore more valuable or less spam like). Higher quality tweets may lead to higher numbers of followers.
This wouldn't apply to SO or MSO as they don't have twitter accounts.
My request is related to this MSO request to allow moderators to retweet with the site account but is different in that a) high rep users could participate and b) only recommendations would be made and users would not directly send the tweet.
