Twitter Verifies Chess Queen™ Alexandra Kosteniuk’s @chessqueen Account

Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk Twitter account chessqueen is verifiedHello everyone! I’m pleased to report that Twitter management contacted me and proposed to “verify” my account “@chessqueen” so that nobody would have any doubt that “@chessqueen” is my account (there are sometimes impersonation attempts using my name Alexandra Kosteniuk or trademark “chess queen”). So now you can be sure that my English Twitter account is @chessqueen. As far as I know, I am the first professional chess player or Grandmaster whose account has been “verified” by Twitter – and the only one at this time. If you know of anybody else whose Twitter account is verified and who is a GM (Grandmaster), please let me know! Read more…

Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk @chessqueen is 3 years old on Twitter

Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk is on Twitter @chessqueenHello everyone! I just found out that exactly 3 years ago I signed up to Twitter under the nickname @ChessQueen. Since then I have tweeted over 5,000 times to close to 180,000 followers around the world. That main twitter account is in English, and I have also opened a Russian Twitter account @Kosteniuk, where I tweet in Russian. I do post more photos on @Kosteniuk, so be sure to follow both @chessqueen and @kosteniuk. I recommend you follow my chess ventures @ChessKing (for the best affordable chess software), @ChessBlog (the world’s leading chess blog), @ChessPics (for beautiful chess photos) and @ChessKillerTips (for free chess educational videos).  Happy chess tweeting!

Alexandra Kosteniuk “chessqueen” on Instagram

Hi everybody!

If you’d like to see the photos I take personally during my trips, chess tournaments, vacations, on my iPhone, you can follow me on Instagram and see them as soon as I shoot them. My nickname is “chessqueen”. The best way to see photos published on Instagram are on the iPhone & iPad (it’s a free application), but they are also automatically pushed also to my Russian Twitter account @kosteniuk and sometimes I repost them on my English Twitter account @chessqueen . Here is my most recent “self-portrait“.
