I agree that Wikipedia handles should join Mastodon. But, again, opening a social media channel needs a strategy. Currently, there's no strategy for the Twitter account, so opening an account in Mastodon without strategy would be a bad decision.

(Still waiting the social media team to define their monthly audience, really opaque statistics)

No, I'm saying it is opaque who of the 41-member comms department at WMF edits Diff. Standard practice even for non-profit publications is for the masthead to be public.

Hello The Cunctator,

I am assuming your reply was asking who can edit Diff. I don't think
posts are editable in the sense of a Wiki.  Proposing a content on Diff
is open to anyone as long as it fit in its scope. There are more
informations at:

* https://diff.wikimedia.org/about/
* https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Diff_(blog)

The blog is managed by the WMF Movement Communications team:
who will assist in polishing up your draft blog post before it is published.
