Masters of the Twitterverse
But, about a year ago, I decided to try it out and joined Twitter. I followed a number of people from the board game community, and just observed what they wrote. Seth Jaffee was the very first one to follow me back (Thanks, Seth!)
And what I found was this:
- There is a lot of really interesting information about our board gaming community on Twitter!
- It's great to see people share their experiences and pictures playing games, buying games, and getting excited about new releases or Kickstarters. It makes us feel connected!
- It's also really cool to get insights from designers about games they are working on, and resources they share with the community about how to improve our designs.
- It's a very real-time stream of consciousness, and a level of connection you don't get through any other medium.
So now Twitter is one of my most visited apps, and I started to put together a list of all the Board Game people I could find out in the Twitterverse.
I've decided to share that list with you all here, and encourage you to jump in. The water's warm and the people are friendly.
For each of the people below, I've added their publicly available Twitter profile information, as well as my quick opinion on the type of content they typically post. (Look for some of my favorites noted below as well!)
The list is sorted by most Twitter followers, with information updated as of Sept 1st, 2014.
I will try to update this periodically, but no promises on how often I'll be able to do so. If you're not on the list, feel free to add your information.
Note: Internet privacy is important to me, and I hesitated whether to make this list public (even though all this information is already publicly available.) If you are on this list and don't want to be, no problem. Just let me know and I'll remove that entry.
If your information is incorrect (besides the tweet volume and number of followers which changes rapidly), let me know and I'll update it.
Finally, if you'd like to follow me on Twitter, that would be great. I'll return the favor. Here's my profile information in the same format that you'll see for everyone else below. (Click the "Follow" link to follow me on Twitter.)
