Note: this is a remake of MattyFTM's thread. It had not been updated in over a year, and therefore I asked his permission to make a new thread. Therefore, this is the new thread guys.

 
First of all, welcome to the official Giant Bomb Twitter thread (2.0). Matty gave me his permission to update this thread, and I've been planning to get more involved in this community, so this is my way of doing so. First of all, I want to point out that I am doing this of my own free will, and that it will take time to complete. I'm planning to add everyone who put their username in the previous thread on here, so it will take me some time. Please, don't get annoyed if I have not added you within a certain period of time. I have a life outside of GiantBomb, I have other things to do. Expect the majority of work to take place over the weekend and my free time. I do not know how long I will continue to update this for, but I shall give it my all. Now, onwards with the actual Twitter part of this.
 

Twitter: The n00b's guide

Twitter is a social networking site (like Facebook and MySpace, without the garish customisation), which allows users to post 'tweets'. Think of the status update from Facebook, add in more features such as retweeting that update, and then think of a completely different API. The simple fact of the matter is that Twitter has generated a lot of publicity recently, and a lot of news hits Twitter before anywhere else. It served a valuable purpose during the Iranian election events of 2009, but I digress. Check out Twitter ( http://www.twitter.com) for more information about the site. 
 
Whiskey Media Quests 
Whiskey Media formed a new Quests Twitter, which I highly recommend you all follow. It'll help you keep up to date with Quests both on Giant Bomb, and other Whiskey Media sites. Follow the account here, and get the drop on quests before anyone else does. Whiskey Quests is a really useful account for this sole reason, and if you

Additional Information

This list is not complete, and may never be. I apologise to those who are not yet present on the list, but I need to switch browsers as Firefox bogs down when adding many links to content. However, I will aim to continue and work on this for the rest of the time I am online. Should you wish to get on this list, please post your Twitter name. Some users are not present on the list for two reasons:
 
  • Their account on Twitter does not appear to exist.
  • I have not seen them active on the site. Feel free to request re-added if I am in the wrong here!

Yeah he probably shouldn't be on there. Either that or just change it to Whiskey Media Staff in general and list all the important Whiskey guys and gals.

That's not fair to the rest of the guys though. 
I mean, I don't think it's fair to only have Luchadeer on there :o

So, I should remove alex_navarro from the table? Thanks for all the help to everyone who has contributed to the thread thus far! Reckon we can get this anchored or whatever? If so I might make my OP a guide to Twitter as well. I've been meaning to write some stuff up, and GB seems like an ideal place to distribute it - alongside my wiki edits ;)

Well if you're going to remove him, you should probably remove GMan too. I don't know though, if people on Giant Bomb have an interest in the other Whiskey media staff then I think it's totally fine to have them on here. But then you could maybe consider changing the heading to Whiskey Media staff. Idk, whatever you wanna do. 
 
Also, yes, this should be stickied.

I figured what I'll do is I'll remove Alex and GMan for now, and then when the rest of the list is looking complete I can add a section for 'Other Whiskey Media Staff', and include all of them there. Just a forewarning though: it is highly likely I'm going to need more help with them due to the fact I don't know most of the Whiskey Media staff. I know of coonce, Alex and GMan, though I do not know of any others who do not operate on this site. So this is more of a community effort than anything, and I'm inclined to enjoy that more than a solo thing :D

I say go with this. Why miss out on Will's lovely tweets? Also GMan is so a Comicvine guy. (Oh he was removed)
 
I wonder if Drew does? Hmm

That is everyone so far on the list, to my knowledge! Just curiousity, but does anyone know of some of the corporate accounts on Twitter? Game companies, developers, etc.? If so, please do recommend them and I'll try and add them. I added the ones I know of myself, but more is always better.

If you like webcomics, then my feed is certainly worth a follow. As co-host of the Digital Strips podcast, when I'm not tweeting about video games, I'm usually talking about webcomics. My Twitter name is mdnytecartunr.

Awesome stuff. There are some staff, mods & whiskey sites you are missing:
Staff:

Mods:
Whiskey Sites:
  • Whiskey Media
  • Tested (the second Tested twitter account is a feed of what goes up on the site, rather like the Giant Bomb twitter, whereas the first one that you've got there is actual comments & stuff from the staff, so both should be listed)

Thanks for the accounts Matty! They've all been added too, so that's all good. The thread has been updated again up to Teeknuts' post, on page 2.

Yes. You might as well considering the fact you can get some good fun on Twitter, and it allows you to stay in contact with people that Facebook friends don't know. I find that the advantage to having both is that Facebook allows me to keep in contact with friends I know in real life, and Twitter allows me to get on with my friends on the internet. I don't know if you'll feel the same way, but it's worth trying Twitter at the very least. And if you don't like it you can always close your Twitter account. Though I do think it's quite addictive to tweet after a while, so you could find yourself keeping your account open!  
 

Oh, and thank you to whoever 'anchored' / stickied this thread!
