I totally support Tom Chance's opinion - the answer to this question is
"No".

Steve has done a lot of good things for the project but it was long time
ago (years ago, to be precise). Currently other people do a lot to help the
project and to represent the project. CWG was created specifically for this
purpose and they do a great job as much as they can. Any official channels
(and @openstreetmap is among them) should be controlled by them and only
them. If you don't like the things that are posted there - contact them,
become one of them, but you can't be outside this group and do things on
behalf of the whole project. Time when this can be done has come and gone,
OSM is no longer small project. Bill Gates doesn't tweet from official MS
accounts so why should Steve?

The decision on changing passwords was right and things should be left
as-is.
