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)

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 ;) Jan 17, 2012 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.)
