10) Paddy Power @paddypower

Just about anything Paddy Power does is entertaining and innovative, including their twitter account.  View collections of odds from all over the map, prop bets, sports trivia, links to PR stunts and some good old fashioned Irish humor.

9) DavidSargeant @smallprophet

David Sargeant of Zukido is an informed industry professional who provides his followers with interesting industry news updates, information from online gambling industry conferences and even the odd cheeky tweet at his pals who are the conference speakers.

8) Joe Brennan @joebrennanjr

Our friend Joe Brennan Jr. loves to tweet about anything and everything New Jersey, with updates on regulation of sports gambling in the state and in the USA as a whole.His followers will also enjoy tweets about the wonderful world of professional sports in general.

7) American Gaming Association @AGAupdate

When it comes to federal regulation of online gambling in the United States, the American Gaming Association is always on top of the latest.  The AGA twitter account is full of updates on regulation and they are incredibly responsive to anyone who tweets at them or sends DMs.

6) DanielNegreanu @RealKidPoker

There are plenty of poker pro twitter accounts, but most are littered with stats and bad beats which, lets be honest, we don’t care about unless we play poker ourselves.  Negreanu’s twitter account is different though, rather than tweeting everything poker,his account is full of random facts, inspiring stories, infamous rants and affirmations.

5) TatjanaPasalic @tattytats

While Ms. Pasalic does sent out fun tweets about poker tourneys, poker pro interviews, cooking and travel adventures, you’ll probably want to follow this one for her profile picture on the left plus other pics of herself that she tweets while gallivanting around the globe.

4) Pokerati @Pokerati

The Pokerati twitter account is incredible for up-to-date poker industry news, constant tweets from US facing conferences and poker tourneys, plus an almost immediate response to DMs and anyone who tweets at them.

3) Marco Valero @AgentMarco

Marco Valero of QuadJacks is an online gambling and poker industry news tweeter AND a master of tweeting random thoughts that are funny and will make you ponder…

2) Betfair Poker @betfairpoker

This account tweets very little about poker and Betfair and focuses more “random twitterings”, some London office humor and is guaranteed to make you laugh no matter who you are.  Followers are even granted free tourney entry from time to time.

1) Taco Bell @TacoBell

This may not a gaming industry twitter account, but its one of the best out there.  Taco Bell has mastered interaction with customers by encouraging customers to tweet @TacoBell with pictures and videos featuring taco bell products and rewards them with witty replies.  The @TacoBell constant tweets are hilarious as well, who even cares if you like Taco Bell, study this one for your own marketing strategy and have a laugh at the same time.
