The C++ committee has serious people and process issues.

I second Ville's suggestion. Although I disagree with some of Herb's
technical stances (e.g. "almost always auto"), he probably will report
things much more accurately than Cor3ntin (whom you'll find is probably
10 years old). In this case, I'd say the account to follow should be
@isocpp, but they don't seem to tweet about committee meetings and such,
so probably Herb is as close as you can get.
