As is becoming the trend, Twitter has found its way into yet another product with Bizarre Creations and Activision Blizzard including the social network in Blur (PC, PS3, Xbox 360). Here is an example of something you might see on your Twitter feed when the game is released within the next few months:
I'm tweeting directly from Blur - Yes, Twitter is in the game! - "I'm currently looking at the CCX-R in #blurthegame"
The tweets are coming from inside the game! What will you be able to tweet? "Players can choose to Tweet about race victories, how many fans they've just earned, cars they've unlocked, leaderboard ranks, send challenges to friends and much more."
I dunno, this seems like free game marketing to me more than it does a legitimate feature. Then again, I don't have a Twitter account, so I'm not prone to doing things like this: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2008/4/23/
yeah this is clearly the reasoning behind it
