Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I wanted to tweet something on the lines of "Stack Overflow is awesome". When I do this kind of stuff, I usually use a username (for example: @microsoft) or a hashtag (#linux)

I found @stackoverflow, but it seems it is from someone unrelated with Stack Overflow.

Is there a Twitter account I can reference, or should I use a hash-tag? Should I just point to the site?


(Notice: I've seen lots of questions regarding Twitter and Stack Overflow, but those are mostly about integration/login with Twitter for the users accounts; I'm just asking for a single account for Stack Overflow; probably for announcements and PR, which is different)

I use the hash tag #StackOverflow - no idea whether it's "official" or not. – ChrisF Jan 17 '12 at 13:55
I also failed to find an offical Stack Overflow twitter! We have @STackExchange but that's all I found, all other sites have one. – Ben Brocka Jan 17 '12 at 14:18
shouldn't SO claim that name for themselves? see – adardesign Jan 23 '13 at 17:18
I think there is a subtle self-reference your question @BoltClock's a Unicorn, was the question who is @stackoverflow? – Datageek Oct 26 '15 at 22:40

The list of people who use the #StackOverflow hash tag includes:

SE founders, employees, mods, top contributors, etc. That's official enough for me :)

A few these will sometimes use #stackexchange instead, but you can add me to the #stackoverflow list ;) – Joel Coehoorn Jan 17 '12 at 18:58

@BoltClock'saUnicorn: You're a mod and a unicorn. It doesn't get more official than that. (You were also near the top of the recent hash tag uses, among the names which I actually recognized.) – David Jan 17 '12 at 19:14
I'm not converting this to CW because I fear SPAM that would dilute the intent of your answer. – Tim Post Jan 17 '12 at 19:15
Alright! The hash tag it is, then! Cheers! – egarcia Jan 17 '12 at 19:27
