Pokémon Red now playable on Twitter

After Twitch Plays Pokémon is Pokémon Red now also playable in a crowd-controlled version via Twitter. That initiative was launched last weekend.

Like the version on Twitch, users can respond on Twitter with any Game Boy button. Every 15 seconds, the most requested button on the game and associated twitter avatar is applied.

You can now play Pokemon Red in my avatar! ?

The idea comes from twitterer Constantin Liétard, a developer at studio Gameloft Montreal. More than thirty thousand people have already responded to the tweet. Due to its popularity, you can now also respond via Discord and play the game together with other interested parties.
