What the shit is Twitter?
Twitter is a very simple and effective networking tool. It's basically a 140 character text message to the internet that provides an easy way to get your name out there and to meet new people.
For those looking to follow game companies and press should stop by gameindustrytweet.com. It's a great resource for both fans and aspiring game journalists/developers alike.
It should also be noted that a lot of game Twitters give out codes for free stuff, but there's already a thread for that.
Sam Houston, the man behind Gameindustrytweet.com, has recently launched a new site called tweetmygaming.com. It's a real-time stream of gaming conversations happening on Twitter, tracking popular gaming trends and such.
