I would think that itch.io has the same sort of reasoning behind it as Gamejolt - it's something that would probably be linked to anyway in the Completed section or the Beta Testing section.

Discord might be a good idea, though.

Itch seems like a good idea. I don't think discord is, as AFAIK there isn't a good way to find a particular person there. (And it's also kinda new.)

Follow feature has been added since October 2014 on itch.io. On second thought: Discord, it's probably too early to mention it, they're still in beta IIRC. I received an email from them due to inactivity on Aug. 17, looking for feedback on further improvements.

The best way to find people on Discord is with their user number, I think. But you're right about it still being in beta, so it might be better to hold off on making a decision there anyways.
