A proposition:

1/ Translate on Meta the message "Tech News: {{{1}}}-{{{2}}}" (anywhere,  
for instance in Template:Tech header)

2/ Replicate by bot or by hand this message on each language wiki (WP, WS,  
etc.) into a template {{Tech News title}} containing the corresponding  
translation of "Tech News: {{{1}}}-{{{2}}}"

3/ Post the mass message with title  
News title|{{subst:Tech News title|2014|07}}|Tech News: 2014-07}}]]"  
(perfect tweet: 140 characters :)
