This is just a sales mechanism for something called Kiip.
They are operating under false pretences pretending to be a community service.

Wow... little trigger happy with the sniping? They've got 6 tweets so far that all are related to game development and not their product. Sure they will likely self promo their services at some point in this twitter. They'd be stupid not to. But at least give them the doubt that they are trying to mainly reach out and contribute to the game dev community through this particular twitter account as opposed to their main company's twitter account @kiip

I should note that I did delete a tweet that mentioned our new developer page based on the feedback from Bruce. We'll definitely keep those posts rare.

Our intention is to bring great tips and news around the game dev world and we hope you enjoy them. Through our own blog, we'll be posting guest posts and interviews of some of our awesome developers on their experiences. And we have some more exciting things in the pipeline for the community as well!

This is a great idea! I actually just started a twitter account a few days ago as well with the intent of sharing game development articles that interest me.

@justinlynchvgd

I also created a hashtag #VGD (short for Video Game Development) in the hopes that it may eventually catch on and anyone who wants to find articles, blogs, or any kind of insight into Video Game Development can just search using that hashtag. However if the #VGD brings up too much irrelevant hits then I have also seen people use #gamedev

Sweet! I'll follow you and RT some stuff! Just as an fyi, I've seen #gamedev used a few times if you want to switch over to that.

I actually just updated my post after you posted this about the #gamedev hashtag. I think I will start using that since it makes more sense than #VGD since people probably won't recognize the abbreviation.
