I am very active on twitter and love to post Atari-related items from time to time. Twitter is a great way to get information and interact with a slice of the Atari community. I find that Facebook, and certainly Atari Age, are a bit more active, but twitter has its place and it is not uncommon to see interesting Atari posts as a tweet before it reaches other social media outlets. I list below some hashtags and people to explore on twitter.


  1. Here is a list of commonly used Atari hashtags to explore and a few active Atari tweeters to follow.

#Atari – anything Atari

#Atari800 – tweets specific to the Atari 800 and other 8-bit computers

#Atari8bit – tweets specific to the 8-bit computers

#Atari2600 – tweets about the Atari 2600 VCS

#retrocomputing – general tweets about retro computing with occasional Atari content
