Related: Avoid tweeting bad questions

...Shouldn't questions be given enough time to be vetted by the community before they're shouted to the twitter universe?

This question has been tweeted less than an hour after it was posted. As far as I can tell, at this moment it had a single upvote, no comments and no answers. Quoting related question referred above, "maybe it's time to be a little more selective?"

Incidentally, it turned out a fairly straightforward off-topic - resource recommendation / where-to-start request. Which makes one wonder if it is expected for close voters and flaggers to monitor every new question 24x7 just to prevent this from happening? As far as I know, this is not how system is expected to work:

It's a frickin' volunteer position - you do it when you have the time to do it.

Well, someone was monitoring it... And they upvoted it!

That said, I tend to agree that a single upvote is a bit of a low bar for promotion, and this is hardly the only site where we've seen problems as a result of this. So I've raised the threshold score to 3 for this particular category.
