Notification option for authors when publishing to PS Gallery

When an author publishes an update to their module hosted on the gallery it should provide an option to push a notification to their configured social media accounts.

So an author configures Twitter and LinkedIn profiles on their account/profile. A configuration option within the module being published should allow for a setting that will push a notification to their social media, on their behalf, announcing a new release of that module.

        While RSS feed could be an option I wouldn't say it is ideal from an author's perspective. Notifications to social media are instant for those that follow authors of modules. It has more weight in the sense of "getting the word out" than RSS feeds do now a days. [e.g. I don't even use or get updates vai RSS feeds anymore.]
