Twitter wants to not just join, but facilitate conversations on and around gaming on the platform. Today, the social site best known for its 140 character limit brought @TwitterGaming to life with one tweet.


Soon, others joined the party.


Things escalated quickly.


In a statement to VentureBeat’s Dean Takahashi, Twitter gave us an idea of what we can expect from this new account.

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.”

Twitter has lately shown an increasing interest in gaming. In December, Rodrigo Velloso, formerly Google’s director of gaming content joined the company as the director of gaming partnerships.
