Follow-up question: Is it beneficial to have a Twitter account for your start-up company if you're bringing something to Kickstarter? Would anyone even care?

Having a twitter account and a Facebook page and whatever (bgg game page, even an account here) is a passport - you wanna be where people are. But just having it isn't some magical silver bullet, you have to use it for it to be useful. And if you're not inclined to use it, don't worry it's not the end of the world, really.

The point is that use what's comfortable to you, but don't have one for the sake of having one - get into it!

The blog I used to write for--iSlaytheDragon--is on Twitter (@islaythedragon).

My favorite board game-related people to follow are:

@HyperboleGrant -- Grant Rodiek, designer of Farmageddon (liking Farmageddon is not required to follow him )

@GeekInsight -- The board game writer for Giant Fire Breathing Robot

@BGJosh -- Josh Edwards, creator of BoardGameReviewsbyJosh.com

@BoardGameReview -- I don't like the board games subreddit very much, but this Twitter account is kind of like the "greatest hits."

Thanks for this. I'm going to take some time checking out all the fellow gamers on Twitter listed here.

If anyone is interested, I have been compiling a very big Board Gamer list on Twitter as well: https://twitter.com/thechriscormier/board-game-twitter-group.... I take a very flexible view of the term "board gamer" and include everything from dice/card games, minis & war games, scrabble & word games, DnD/RPG games, paper and pencil games.

You can find me at: https://twitter.com/thechriscormier

I also put together a list of Board Game Designers on Twitter. This list is not nearly complete, but for what it's worth, here it is too:
