Tax breaks trend on Twitter

Tax breaks trend on Twitter

Bringing a bit of light relief to the heavy subject of tax, Chancellor Alistair Darling’s move to offer tax relief to some UK games developers has sparked interest amongst the Twitter-using public and become one of the morning’s most discussed subjects.

At the time of writing, #culturallybritishtaxbreakgames is the most used hashtag on the UK arm of the service and second in the UK trending topics list. It was first started this morning by recruitment agency SpecialMove.

Most users are adopting the tag for names of games that could be altered to make them more ‘culturally British’.
