Twitter Post by Hall Hood (lead writer) Suggests New Event?

Do you follow your favorite game developers and staff on social media? Lots of us do and it’s one of the greatest parts of the popularity of social media. I love when I can look up someone who works on a game I enjoy and can find them on Twitter, especially if they update regularly. But one downside to this easy-access is that misinformation is sometimes spread. It’s a casualty of the platform and perhaps that 140-character limit. We saw a good example of that today.

For those who follow SWTOR’s lead writer Hall Hood on Twitter, you may already know that he often teases us with snippets of things to come in the game. This morning he set Twitter afire with SWTOR fans expecting a new event after this tweet:

 

Unfortunately, this wasn’t a new event and he apologized for the confusion and has been attempting to explain. Hood is the main author of Jedi Knight and co-author of Smuggler class plots. He’s responsible for overseeing all game fiction.

He followed it up with this tweet to clarify:

 

So now that the confusion is cleared up, let’s add that it’s a lot of fun to follow SWTOR/BioWare staff on Twitter and other social media to keep up with what’s going on. But remember that it’s important to understand their role in the company and in the game they are working on so you don’t jump to any conclusions.  We’re still interested in this new future content. What about you?
