Hi everyone,
Yesterday I've found myself surprised to have been added to the POV-Ray twitter
list, which I had never heard of, by a user nicknamed Pix Thagoras, which I
believe I don't know. The list has 8 members and doesn't contain much tweets
related to POV-Ray except for a bot posting images of a nail polish bottle.
Beside it also contains tweets with harmful content, which I've immediately
reported to Twitter.
I've blocked it and will just ignore it without further concern but, does anyone
here knows about that list ?

Pascal

I don't know. Imho, not something started 'officially' by the POV-Team. 
Probably a private initiative from somebody, typically I guess not 
active on these newsgroups. Did you recognise any twitter's names?

I seem to remember, somewhen early this year, that I came across this 
while looking for something completely unrelated. I do not use twitter 
myself at all, but from what I can dig up from google (through 
'Startpage' anonymous view) are some images that /might/ have been made 
with POV-Ray, but which have never been shown/discussed here as far as I 
can tell. All rather 1990's style at first glance. So... better to 
avoid, I would say.

Same here.

And since I am not currently interested in purchasing any nail polish, I think
I'll avoid that twitter group :-P

Same here,
I never came across it, and am glad you reported it. Thus I hope it will be
completely removed by the time we would try and make any real  one (Though I
didn't connect to twitter for a whiile and rather contemplated Diaspora/Mastodon
....But I did find a lot of truly POV related content on Instagram !
