The TSE software will tweet questions and answers on (I assume) a periodic basis. This is fine for people who follow TSE on Twitter, but may not reach your followers.

You can tweet using the 'share' button.

enter image description here

When you tweet questions, people can go "Hey, I know the answer to that" and then become valued community members.

And when you tweet answers, people can go "Hey, I need to read that, I'll go over there and read it..." and this drives up the site stats which in turn gives a higher Google ranking.

All good. I can't think of a disadvantage to tweeting out your stuff (can you?) and there are lots of advantages.

Are there any aspects where tweeting your stuff results in a disadvantage?

    I'm one of these privacy-crazers and like to keep my twitter (not that I'd use it other than complaining to companies) and SE separate. – mts Feb 2 '17 at 14:31

    @mts haha, I'm with you on that one. The only reason I even have a twitter is that sometimes it's the most convenient way to get a quick answer to questions from an airline when the answer isn't on their website. – reirab Feb 5 '17 at 4:15
