What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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 support.twitter.com/articles/15362-inactive-account-policy – 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 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
