I’ll go out on a limb and say that the increasing uptake of Twitter amongst the gaming community is gonna make this season’s con coverage a little easier to generate. I’m not at Origins myself this year – it’s Go Play Northwest for me, starting tomorrow – but the #origins2009 hashtag is already well populated with product pics and general chatter. Need a gander at the Shadowrun 20th Anniversary rulebook? Look, a dude has you covered! Want dozens of “sitting down to play ___” notices? Sure, why not! I’m not sure why Twitter is the right place at the right time, but it’s pretty exciting to see gamers suddenly start using the internet the way we should have been six years ago. I can’t wait for the flood of tweets from Gen Con.
