Video Game companies on Twitter

This past summer I made a blog post basically calling out video game companies for not being active in social media , specifically Twitter.  In that blog post you can find some tips/tutorials I gave for how to use social media, how to monitor, etc.   Please check it out if you’re interested in how I use Twitter at gamerDNA and how to use it to monitor your brand/company on Twitter/FriendFeed and blogs.

Luckily, since then a lot of game companies have signed up for twitter and they are using it for various purposes like personal use, advertising stuff they are doing(or worse..just using it as a way to post when they have a blog update via TwitterFeed integration), or even actively using it to interact with their customers/gamers and as a customer service tool.

Since things have changed since that August blog article and I haven’t really seen a list on the web somewhere of all the game companies on Twitter, I’ll try to start a list here.

Notice: Due to the popularity of this list I’ve decided to launch GameIndustryTweet.com .  If you’re looking for a list of Video Game Companies on Twitter please click here .

Please add me on Twitter to keep in touch and enjoy GameIndustryTweet.com !

Company I work for:

    I have discovered that good real estate agents just about everywhere are getting set to FSBO Promoting. They are acknowledging that it’s not only placing a poster in the front place. It’s really concerning building human relationships with these traders who someday will become buyers. So, if you give your time and effort to encouraging these retailers go it alone — the “Law connected with Reciprocity” kicks in. Interesting blog post.

    Thanks for your post. I would really like to write my opinion that the cost of car insurance varies greatly from one insurance policy to another, since there are so many different issues which play a role in the overall cost. For example, the make and model of the motor vehicle will have a tremendous bearing on the charge. A reliable ancient family motor vehicle will have an inexpensive premium when compared to a flashy performance car.
