Gaming has grown to proportions that can no longer be ignored. Every day, thousands of users start and join conversations about gaming, on every social network. Twitter is no exception. It makes perfect sense for Twitter to open up a dedicated channel for all gamers.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
In a statement, Twitter explained the rationale behind the new account:
[quote]Whether folks are discovering a new game, Tweeting at a gaming personality, keeping up with gaming news or following their favorite eSport, we want to make it easy for gaming fans to find and join the most vibrant conversations about games.[/quote]
And It’s Not Just About A New Account.
Twitter actually launched its presence in the gaming world back in September 2015, when Rodrigo Velloso joined the company as director of gaming partnerships. And this is not Velloso’s first try – he has held the same role at YouTube for almost 3 years. His time there, resulted in the launch of a dedicated Youtube channel for gaming.
So, what do you think? Is gaming the future of social?

The account is only 2 hours old at the time of writing and it already counts over 22K followers, no doubt proving that the demand for channels like this is very very real.
