If you’ve been following Impulse (or Stardock for that matter) for any length of time, you know one of the things that sets us apart and makes us unique is how accessible we are, and how easy it is to get in contact with us, be it via the forums, IRC, e-mail or instant messenger. We know that a lot of our success comes from our outstanding community of gamers, and we are always looking for new ways to get news out there, and talk talk directly to gamers.
Now, some of you may already know this, but over the last few months we’ve started posting to Twitter.
Twitter, for those of you who haven’t heard of it, is a micro-blogging service….
Here’s the official description:
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent messages. People write short updates, often called "tweets" of 140 characters or fewer. These messages are posted to your profile or your blog, sent to your followers, and are searchable on Twitter search.
It’s free, and doesn’t require any special software (though there are some excellent twitter apps out there. I use TweetDeck myself). It’s also incredibly easy to use.
We use our various Twitter accounts to announce releases, interesting news bits, and even a few giveaways. Not to mention we just like chatting with other users on the service.
