Since it’s only on Sam’s Twitter feed and not the Discourse one, the answer was “only sort of”.
I got to wondering how these sort of important news could be consolidated a bit more effectively. I managed to dig up an IFTTT recipe of what I was trying to achieve, but unfortunately it’s outdated and I was unsuccessful at updating it.
Sooo, this ended up becoming more needy than helpful, but if someone can figure out a simple method for automatic retweeting of a specific user’s specific hashtag, twitter/discourse would have all the news.
(Alternatively you could use http://grouptweet.com/, but it’s expensive)
