The point is to encourage people to write *more* well-thought-out proposals than can fit in an email, not less. Hence Allen's suggestion of blogs, websites, or github. If language design issues can be resolved in bursts of 140 characters then I think I will need to find a new line of work. ;)

Write it up anyway.  Then post it to your personal blog, website, github, or anywhere else that  you have access to.  Then start a discussion thread here and point at your proposal.  That's really all it takes.

Given how active Brendan and Allen are on twitter (how do you guys find the time?) has TC39 considered a twitter channel perhaps along strawman boundaries? For example the strawman page could add a twitter reference next to each strawman (if the author wants to). Given the amount of informal discussion happening now it looks like it's happening anyway...
