While last night was flooded with the news of screenPLAY‘s cancellation, it wasn’t the only video game show to be affected by decisions from management.
The official Good Game account announced yesterday – at 1620 AEST – that the show’s Twitter page would be deactivated from Friday. According to the post, the decision to shut down was “requested by the higher-ups”, although each of the hosts would maintain their own personal accounts and that the closure would not affect Good Game: Spawn Point‘s presence on YouTube.
As requested by the higher-ups, we are unfortunately closing our Good Game Twitter page on Friday 4th May. Our hosts @goosemangus @angharadyeo @GeeOfDee will continue to remain active on Twitter and other platforms; and we'll still be hanging out on our GGSP YouTube channel ???????? pic.twitter.com/8NP95b2Ops

At the time of writing, the @GoodGameTV account has around 36,800 followers. The combined following of each of the hosts totals around 19,275, while the show’s Facebook page is followed by just over 152,000 people.
In a follow-up tweet, the team said that ABC management “see that tour audience isn’t on Twitter”. “Also, since [Good Game‘s] cancellation, we weren’t supposed to be using the Twitter page anyway,” the team wrote.
