Women in Games to Follow on Twitter

There are so many amazing women doing great things in the video game industry, and we’re not quiet about it!  Here is a roundup of just a FEW of the awesome women game developers that you should be following on Twitter.

Note: I didn’t include anyone who has their tweets protected, and this list is by no means exhaustive.   Please comment with anyone I missed, and I will certainly add them to the official Twitter list (but probably not this post, since it’s hard to edit and easier to add them to the list!)
