Codes, Formatting, and Actions
This section is about how the players in the game let each other know what they are doing. There are several action codes that have developed to let other players know how they need to react to your tweet. As with all things TwitterPonies, these are commonly accepted practices and not hard rules.
((..)) The double parentheses
This is used for meta game stuff going AFK non character chatter and the like.
((Mom just got home AFK for 15))
(..) The single parentheses
This is used to denote inner thoughts of the character.
(Did I accidentally eat Pinkie’s special cupcake by mistake?)
*..* The star
This is used to denote an action a character is taking.
*Wakes up and starts brushing his mane.*
".." The quote marks
Usually used to denote that a NPC is speaking, but can occasionally be used to denote that a character is speaking. This is an optional choice. Most ponies don't use this, even most of the main cast don't use the quotation marks!
*Looks at Mier who says* "What you looking at bub."
"Oh my, What did you put into that cupcake Pinkie?"
This is optional. Most Twitterponies put nothing around the parts at which they speak.
o/`..o/` The musical notes
Used to denote singing, occasionally used to denote playing of a musical instrument.
o/`Happy is the day I found my true looooove! o/`
<..> TwitterBird messages
Used to send TwitterBird messages, shortened to TBs. It's sent from one pony to another in case they're not in the same place.
Twi sends a TB to Rainbow. <Meet me at the Treebrary tonight.>
