This might have been discussed and dismissed in the past but if so I'm not aware so....

Would there be any mileage in adding tweet, facebook and other buttons to articles and other publicly available content?

An awful lot of people tweet or post interesting links and it would be a good way of drawing more people into the site.

Seems reasonable for articles and such. We'll have to see what the technical department says.

There are problems with this depending on what is meant by it.

For example with twitter I have the code that would tweet to a downsizer twitter account, but you just can tweet to anyone's personal twitter account.

Yes that's the one - also a similar one for Facebook.

Seems a reasonable addition, and straight forward enough to do.
