1 Year of Gaming Tweets [Infographic]

We want to let the image speak for itself, so will keep this entry brief. What you see below is approximately one year of Twitter video game-related chatter from the period of July 27 2009 to July 22 2010. It shows the 150 most commonly used words in gamers' tweets. The graph was generated using over 28 Million gaming-related tweets collected by AggreTweet - a live streaming aggregator for gaming conversations happening on Twitter. Platforms, Games, Events - even Communities like Joystiq and Kotaku have real-time feeds on AggreTweet.

As promised, we'll keep this entry short. But I want to leave you with one last thing: we've recently launched our #PartyUp on Twitter feature to help gamers connect via Twitter - please check it out and read more about it. It's one thing for us to make it, but we need your help to spread the word! Now, enjoy this Infographic...

Introducing #PartyUp on Twitter!

Ever find yourself in need of an extra player or two to round out your Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network party? We've just launched a new tool for gamers that makes finding players for your favorite games easy, thanks to Twitter - called #PartyUp on Twitter!

How it works:
  1. Put "#PartyUp" in any context in a tweet.
  2. Watch the feed for your tweet to appear.
  3. Wait for fellow gamers to @ reply you!
Hopefully gamers will find this a useful resource for further socializing their gaming experiences!
