Tweeria – the lazy RPG of the social media generation

Here’s a confession: I’m a social media addict. I check my Facebook account about a hundred times every day, and I’m more often on LinkedIn and Google+ than I’m willing to admit. However, there’s always been one social network that I never really got into: Twitter. Sure, I can understand why it is so awesome: short messages using lots of abbreviations and hashtags are an interesting way to tell the world about your daily endeavours, but the confines of the 160 characters per message always irritated me. Yes, as you can see on the right, I’ve embraced Twitter for the sake of this blog, but I still have to acquire its taste. One of the things that helps me doing so is Tweeria.

Tweeria is probably the laziest RPG ever created. You link your Twitter account to your Tweeria account, and every time you tweet something to the world-wide web, your Tweeria hero does something. By using the right words, you can cast spells and do other heroic things, but in the end, the actions caused by your short messages are rather random. However, the chaotic nature of this innocent game is rather charming, and earning a pair of boots for retweeting a celebrities’ update feels kind of cool.

Check it out, I’d say. The Chin needs some company in Tweeria!
