I am the one behind the CentOS6 account. I try to keep people informed 
about the CentOS6 release and point them to the QA calendar when there 
is an update.

Also, from my past experience, the public release of a CentOS version 
comes a few days after the synchronization to external mirrors. That is 
why one of the latest tweet approximates the public release date on July 
1st 2011.

A lot of followers for this account are from Japan. I guess using 
twitter to receive updates about a subject is more common there. I'm 
trying to give more exposure to the QA calendar (a great tool for the 
community) by following and anticipating it.
