    Follow us too. #pillar4

    I don't tweet often, except to occasional rant about the woes of indie game development. But I will be tweeting more as some of our games near completion.

    Here's my personal twitter thing:
    www.twitter.com/fabi_smith

    Decided to switch over from engaginggames, since I wanted to share more gamedev thoughts than just droppinbombs :)
    Feels good after a couple of weeks of adjustment.

    I have a Twitter, but I quit after finding about its 140-word limit. So hard to post anything.............

    Ok. I NEVER use leet, and I always try to use correct spelling, punctation.... .etc. WHY IS TWITTER TRYING TO FORCE ME TO USE LEET?

    Newspapers and emails don't use "leet", and they manage to fit headlines in under 140 characters all the time. Again, Twitter is not a blog, nor is it your Facebook status. You need to think of it differently.

    Headline + bit.ly link. Easy. (Not to mention things like bloggers have a simple button click to post your most recent blog and get more traffic to your site.)

    It's a great tool. You should use it.

    Twitter is good for a few things. A. Finding out what everyone is doing at that exact moment. B. connecting with your friends or fans if you have enough that are interested in what you have to say.. :p

    Anyone else think we might need a new Twitter thread where the first post is updated with a list of everyone that wants to be involved? A kind of everyone-follows-each-other kind of deal to build followers and generally "network" Unity developers?

    Hey guys!
    I'm a computer science student and started using Unity a few weeks ago. I'm participating on #1GAM (oneGameAMonth.com) and am using Unity for these (2D) games. I've also started following a few that have already posted in this thread. Pretty interesting here :)

    Hello guys from Russia! :)

    I'm a developer, have many interests, one of them is gamedev, like creating games (mostly puzzles, but want to try platformers).

    Here is my twitter (it's also in my signature) : http://twitter.com/VMaklaud I write something from my life, different new events, about my games, my blog, my other interests etc.
    I also have another twitter for LaBee games (see the Following section), but don't use it often.

    Hey folks, here's mine @hdivider.

    Love the idea of this thread. We have such a massive accumulation of talent and creative force here - and no excuse not to connect.

    Shoot me an email if you want to talk about gamedev, or need Unity help, or are up for short silly game projects. =)
