Yes, I do. What's the point of this thread, a list of CryDev Twitterers? (tweeters? the CryDev flock?)

Not to be a party pooper here or anything, but what advantage does it have over Facebook? I'm not demeaning it, I'm just partially looking for enlightenment. I personally haven't ever found a use for it in anything.

It's simpler alright, so simple that it seems like it would almost be a bit lonely if you didn't have hundreds of fans parading behind and watching you. I'm not entirely sure how the social interactivity works over there.

Not necesarily, you dont neet to be a follower of a person for to send him/her a twitt...
Also you dont need to have followers for to receive twitts...

That is how I discovered that , infact, there are gamer girls...A very strange specie very hard to find....
Is more easy to find petroleum in the backyard of your house, than to find a nerd girl/woman.

It's nice if you want to follow the thoughts of people that you don't know well enough to consider friends (unless you're one of those "add ALL the acquaintances"-type Facebook users).

ha ha that looks like a good description to me. xDD
Would you say Twitter is a good tool to get attention to game projects you are working on? I think if I ever use it that would be the reason. :D

Ah, that makes sense. I've considered it here and there, but it seems like something I would probably just not follow through on. :P

I could never understand twitter, the layout seemed really akward to me. However it seems to have a really big following so i suppose it must have its advantages.

No, "Twittbots" are just Twitter Bots. They're not confined to the "fake" gamer girls you describe.
