Scouring the industry's Twitter feeds so you don't have to

Have trouble keeping up with twitter? Well Totally Gaming has been scouring the feeds to bring some of the more interesting tweets from the industry to your attention. Have you seen something that is worthy of attention? Tweet us at @totallygaminghq or re-tweet using the hashtag #twitterlygaming

We start with a strong appearance yesterday by the Gambling Commission's CEO Sarah Harrison at the WrB event on social reposnsibility innovation in London. 

The International Association of Gaming Advisers was impressed. It tweeted: "UK Gambling Commission CEO Sarah Harrison: much opportunity for local, natl & intl responsible gaming collaboration".

They weren't the only one impressed. Chris Eaton, former Interpol, FIFA and ICSS executive was also pleased to hear what the Gambling Commission had to say on in-play betting.

He tweeted: The UK regulator very impressive! A global explosion in sport betting cries out for regulatory maturity & innovation matching the industry

 

On the subject of regulation, the American Gaming Association continujes to make its case for the regulation of sports betting in the US on the launch of the new NFL season.

It tweeted: Football bets to top $90B for 2nd straight season, 98% bet illegally; fed gov ban a complete failure #NFL #NCAAF

Someone else who was unimpressed at the NFL this year was Coral Nick Goff, although he puts that down to old age rather than a diminished spectacle.

In a couple of tweets, he shared: For about the last 20 years I've always stayed up for the first NFL game without even considering the possibility of not watching it live.

Tonight I've decided I'll go to sleep at 11, get up at 6 to put the dog out & watch it then as if live. And that, my friends, is age. RIP me

Meanwhile Bernard Marantelli of Colossusbets has discovered that Twitter's mantra of giving one hundred percent has found its way into the software, if the calculations from his poll on the site are anything to go by. Maybe all votes aren't equal after all.

He tweeted: Interesting rounding algorithm from twitter.....
