The functionality for posting on Twitter within World of Warcraft is now up and running on the PTR servers. For those that have been wondering, this is a completely optional feature -- if you don't have Twitter, or don't care for Twitter at all, you don't have to use the service. It's just a fun s...

Thank the Light. If there's one thing that keeps me from using my bodyguards, it's how they get in the way of literally everything I want to click.
