Nancy Drew Game Gets A "Twitter Soap Opera"S

Oh, Nancy Drew. Can you forgive me for not playing your PC games after that Emma Roberts film? I promise to catch up on all your mystery, drama and evolving social attitudes on Twitter.

Her Interactive, publisher of the PC games, is putting out a "Twitter soap opera" in conjunction with the upcoming Nancy Drew: Warnings at Waverly Academy. I'm not exactly sure how a soap opera works on Twitter – but the press release says that whatever it is will fill in sections of the story from the perspectives of different characters.

This use of Twitter as an augmentation to gameplay is interesting. Everyone knows the young'uns are into social networks these days. Could it be that publishers will turn to them more often for more than just advertising?

Hm… Fable III, the Twitter experience. How would that work?
