What's your best tweet?
Aggregame's Top 2009 Holiday Gaming Trends published on our official blog.
What are six things you could never do without?
Internet, Video Games, Social Media (couldn't go back to just mainstream media), Google, Apple, Microsoft.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Aside from AggreTweet? Got to go with Tweetie!!
Twitter or Facebook?
Oooooo..... Twitter ;-).
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Balloon Boy *facedesk*
What feature should Twitter add?
Real-time link shortener, like AggreTweet has! (so you can shorten links before submitting the Tweet).
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
More video game developers & publishers. Such an interesting creative industry like video games just has "Twitter" written all over it!
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
There are millions of someone's who do not follow us who we'd like to. I cannot fit them into 140 characters =(.
Why should we vote for you?
Real-time social chatter is so relevant to gamers, and we provide an excellent looking-glass into the industry better than anyone else imho.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#AggreTweet, #Aggregame, #Uncharted2, #MW2, #L4D2, #ODST, #Bayonetta to name a few.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
Not entirely sure if we created it, but #PartyUp! Nothing like putting the call out to fellow gamers that you're looking for players.
How do you make your tweets unique?
Aside from being pretty much the only app of our kind for gamers, we use things like real-time chat rooms to enhance our Twitter feeds.
What inspires you to tweet?
The gamers' thirst for instant gratification and real-time dissemination of news and self-promotion.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Fortunately not, but that is indeed a careful balance that all tweeters must be cognizant of...
140 characters of advice for a new user?
AggreTweet can be useful even if you do not tweet - it is a great way to keep on-top of your gaming news & trends, especially during events!
How long can you go without a tweet?
Seconds, tops, between tweets that AggreTweet feeds out ;-).
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@JD_2020 - he created Aggregame and AggreTweet before leaving for an industry career, and to this day is an avid Tweeter.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Aggregame, our mother ship, began integrating Twitter Spring of 2009, specifically to create AggreTweet for gamers!
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Without Twitter, there is no AggreTweet =). Twitter has changed society, much the way Google has.
How will the world change in 2010?
There will be a shift from traditional media to social media on a larger scale than we've seen to-date. This spans all industries.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
The worst is when people use hashtags with spaces. For example, "Going to hop on #Modern Warfare 2!" Wtf is #Modern?
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Very different from a media perspective. Social media will be dominant by then, and network TV will also have evolved significantly.
