[edit] Disambiguation proposal

So, we have some issues here with this Twitter page being a disambiguation: usually you would expect an article here instead of a disambig and so editors are reluctant to link to it. My proposal:


  • A redirect is a more specific target to link to than a disambiguation. (In this case, Social Media covers the topic well enough.)
  • The redirect allows for a future expanded article.
  • We can link internally instead of linking to wikipedia.

So, what does everybody think? Since this is an article move I figured it would be better to discuss prior to executing. --Stux 20:11, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

I don't strongly support this. I tend to lean toward not including "(disambiguation)" in titles unless necessary. As for the benefits you listed:
  • Disambiguations shouldn't be linked to in the first place, for the most part. And why does it have to be a redirect? [[Social Media|Twitter]] works just as well.
  • Seems kind of pre-emptive. We should cross that bridge when we come to it.
  • What's wrong with linking to Wikipedia? Also, we don't have to link to Wikipedia if we just use [[Social Media|Twitter]].
