Google Play Store starts its own Twitter account to continue bringing news and deals to you

We all know and love the Google Play Store. It's the place we go when we need any Android-related content, including apps, music, and movies. Now, you can follow the Google Play Store on Twitter. No one knows what the Play Store will use its new Twitter handle for, but it'll likely be useful to its followers regardless.

It seems like everyone is using Twitter these days. That includes the very popular and often used Google Play Store. It joins the plethora of other Google services that you can already find on Twitter, including: Google, Google Adwords, Google Nexus, Google Mobile, and Google Chrome. There are a lot more Google services on Twitter and really you have to follow all of them to stay up to date on the latest Google news.

The Google Play Store Twitter account was made just a few days ago and has culminated a sarcastically impressive total of four tweets thus far. This is likely just the calm before the storm, as there is speculation that the Google Play Store will use this Twitter account to bring news, updates, special offers, and a plethora of other content for its fans.

What will be interesting to see is if this brings new content, or simply the same deals and offers you can find via other Google Play offers. In other words, it is unknown at this time whether this Twitter account will simply redistribute old offers or there will be special offers strictly for its Twitter followers. In either case, the Google Play Store just picked up a whole new way to advertise itself.

What has the Google Play Store Twitter done so far?

It’s brand new, so nothing yet. However, they are trying to get a little back and forth going with their customers. Their latest tweet asks users about the most unusual places they’ve used the Google Play Store. So far it’s gotten two answers. One was an airplane, another was an unspecified place that was far above sea level.

Additionally, it is worth noting that a Twitter account can afford the Play Store more opportunities than their standard newsletter. As an example, it is much easier to throw a contest on Twitter than it is via an email newsletter. Here’s hoping the Google Play Store Twitter account isn’t just another brand advertising their deals of the day.
