Since MMO developers are in the business with the intention of making a profit, it's no surprise that nearly all of them offer items for sale. The number of cash shops accompaning games these days has seen a sharp rise as well, as developers seek to keep the profits coming in an increasingly free-to-play climate.
If you hate to part with a buck, the good news is that you can get quite a few of these items free if you're quick. Twitter is a seemingly neverending source of freebies and news on giveaways for game fans these days, you just have to know who to follow. Want some Turbine Points, but are a little short on cash this week? Keep an eye on Turbine's Twitter feed. Ditto if you love the new Dwayna and Grenth costumes, but don't feel like shelling out for them.
These are just a couple of examples, so we want to know: do you follow your favorite game or company on Twitter, and have you been a winner? Who is your favorite for giving away cash shop items?
