    Epic Games has announced that Twitter functionality is going to be incorporated into the next patch of unreal Tournament 3. According to Epic, a player can tie their Twitter account to their install of UT3 through the menu system. Once that is done, the first 140 characters of each in-game message will be sent to your account as a tweet.

    "Online play is the lifeblood of PC gaming," explained the Director Of Online Functionality, United States. "Epic is committed to leaping to the forefront of this technology, by integrating our flagship franchise into The Cloud. Now your friends can follow every shock combo, every sweet hoverboard grind, every flag-camping sniper-whore headshot, wherever they are: at home, at work, on their mobile devices."

    Epic declined to comment on rumors that match results might soon be posted to Digg in real-time.

    Don't think of it so much a return, as a special guest appearance, like when Dean Martin came to visit Jerry Lewis on his telethon after they didn't talk for like 20 years.

    ... except I'm not going to drink myself to death.

    ... and I like Jerry Lewis.

    The question is not what does Twitter do... Rather ask yourself what doesn't Twitter do.

    I've implemented a basic twitter client for UT3. You can tweet and receive updates. So hereby I ruined this April fools joke, by making it real.
