That's a really good idea IMO.
But I'd suggest you ask on the IRC devel channel before submitting one:
keep in mind this Twitter account is "the voice of the FFmpeg project",
it's not really a user forum or wiki, so we should avoid random mistakes
or inefficient tip :)

Here are a few suggestions:
"Quickly in need of a 15 seconds video sample for your tests? ffmpeg -f
lavfi -i testsrc -t 15 test.avi"
"Want to export media information into shell script variables? eval
$(ffprobe -v 0 -show_entries stream=width,height -of flat=s=_ in.avi)"
"Is it OK for me to use FFmpeg git/HEAD? Let's check how green
"FFmpeg is slow to compile, let's try to be faster with dash ./configure
