What is Chess in Tweets?

Welcome to Chess inTweets! Around 300 million registered Twitter users post around 400 to 500 million tweets….per day! Have a look at the fascinating site http://www.internetlivestats.com/twitter-statistics/ to follow what is going on Twitter in real time.

In the chess world, Twitter has become an important source of information. During the world championship matches between Vishy Anand and Magnus Carlsen in Chennai 2013 and Sochi 2014,  Twitter became the most important and quickest source of information for chess lovers worldwide.

However, there are many people who do not use Twitter for various reasons. Opening a Twitter account is dead easy, but the next step is more difficult: who to follow? In recent years, many chess websites, players, organizations, trainers, grandmasters and clubs started tweeting and post thousands of chess tweets … each and every day!  Let’s face it: you just cannot stay online all day to follow all the chess tweets.

Although many people are hestistant to actually become a “Tweep” or Tweeter” , they are still interested what is going on in the Twitter Chess Universe. That is why I started this blog: you find interesting tweets, cool links,  important Twitter users, the latest news, announcements and what have you right here.  In this blog, I will try to find the best, the funniest and most important chess related tweets.

The good news is: you do not even need to have a Twitter account to be able to follow what’s on on Twitter! Just come back to this blog!

The bad news is:  your blogger is not 24/7 online to follow every single tweet from the chess world. If you have any ideas, interesting tweets, users or comments, let me know and help me!

Important: do not forget to add @ChessClassic to your observation list!
