In the future, all my blog post headers work as tweets and status updates

My previous post just made me realize a fundamental flaw in automatic
crossposting (ie., what i write on my blog gets tweeted on Twitter
which in turn is echoed on Facebook). A tweet/status update of
"Comment ground" makes Absolutely No Sense At All when seen in that
context. It might have been another cute wordplay when it was a blog
post header but when migrated, all alone, to another platform -- it
just looks stupid.

So what to do? Give all my postings tweet-friendly titles or continue
confusing people with lyrical/musical/cultural references and not get
a discussion? A human-centered approach -- taking YOU into account,
before me -- would probably be the right one, but what will i be
losing in the process?
