The Amusement Industry is all aTwitter

Written by

Twitter? What is this Twitter I keep hearing about?

Twitter itself describes itself thus:

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

Wikipedia goes a little more in depth:

Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length which are displayed on the user’s profile page and delivered to other users who have subscribed to them (known as followers). Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow anybody to access them. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free to use over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees.

If you are already Twitter, continue reading, if not you may want to check out the Twitter site first.

Although Twitter has been around a couple years, 2009 has brought a huge explosion in use. Below is a list of Twitter users involved in the amusement industry. It is hard to keep up with all of the new accounts, so this list is as complete as it can be when this article was published. If you know of any Twitter accounts not listed below that should be, please let me know.
