Do you wish you knew what all of your favorite Game of Thrones personalities were thinking and doing, every minute of every day? You can actually follow all the (fake) accounts of your beloved, and not so beloved, characters from both the HBO series Game of Thrones, and the book series upon which it was based, A Song of Ice and Fire. Accounts range from serious role players with complex story lines, to parody accounts, some of which are extremely entertaining. For those who prefer to tweet in languages other than English, there is also a huge group of Spanish role players, and we’re seeing new role play accounts starting to appear in many other languages all the time.

The number of Game of Thrones role play accounts is staggering, and more seem to be appearing every day. Whether you love all things House Stark, or you prefer the scheming of House Lannister, you’ll find just about every character represented. There are more Daenerys, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark accounts than one can shake the proverbial stick at, however characters as minor as the Tyrell “cheese boy” have accounts on twitter. Even inanimate objects demand to be heard, such as The Wall and [ahem] Theon’s penis.

Our @HBOWatch twitter account has compiled a list of many of the Westerosi Personalities on twitter, make sure to check it out and give us a follow. You can subscribe to our list and use it as a reference to follow all of the characters you love. If you play a Game of Thrones character on twitter and would like to be added to our list, follow us and send us a tweet! We’d be happy to add you!

Just like the real Westeros, “Twitteros” can be a dangerous place. The Westerosi twitter-verse is divided into a number of warring factions, which only adds to the entertainment. We’ve collected a sampling of tweets from twitter role play accounts representing many of the role play factions of twitter. Check it out, below.
