A lot of chess fans (both professionals and amateurs), websites and stores have Twitter accounts. Here is a digest of some of the most interesting tweets posted this week:

I have a sister, you know...

And how about ICC, Maxime?

Bread and circuses

On the importance of reading chess classics

The anti-QGD protocol

Does it take to be top-10 to meet Carlsen?

The tweet mentions that Evgeny Tomashevsky (#15 in the world) met Magnus Carlsen for the first time in his life at Tal Memorial in Moscow.

On GM Yuri Dokhoian becoming the captain of the Russian men's chess team (instead of women's)



Natalia Pogonina: It's a pity that Yuri Rafaelovich Dokhoian won't be the women's team captain anymore. How about "don't fix what isn't broken"?
Ilya Levitov (chairman of the Russian Federation): @Pogonina, @Kosteniuk Why start panicking...
Alexandra Kosteniuk: It is not panicking, but confusion. If Dokhoian will be the head of the men's team, who will be the captain of the women's team?

General advice

Guess we all just need to play better chess

Laughing insanely after reading the tweet about 'seeing'Carlsen. This also means I've seen somebody like Carlsen obviously before Evgeny. 
At least, Polish referee has referred one particular young man at the chessboard as 'Magnus Carlsen'...
