#SWTORfamily began as a Twitter Account and became a thriving hashtag. The aim was to support players of all shapes and sizes by retweeting Tweets using that hashtag. Now it’s not just about retweeting people – this hashtag started conversations, get reactions and enables people in the SWTOR Community to connect with each other on Twitter. Later, another player created an automated account that would retweet all tweets with the hashtag #SWTOR and #SWTORfamily, and the aim of this project was to have all SWTOR-related tweets on one page and to bring the community together.
