For a while my favourite Twitterer (and Tumblrer) was Chelsea "pixelatedcrown" Saunders, whose accounts mainly shared GIFs of the strange, beautiful, cute and funny low-poly games she was making. Unfortunately (for me), Saunders' work earned her a job at Google and she posts less often now. But good news! Rebecca aka @nonplayercat is now fulfilling the same purpose in my Twitter timeline.
