p>For many in the gaming community, Twitter is one of the most preferred social media outlets for fans to talk about games with others in their communities. Between the massive popularity of online social games like Wordle and Genshin Impact and high-profile AAA games taking up much of the community's collective attention like the recently-released Elden Ring, Twitter is a popular outfit for gamers to share their opinions and progress through a variety of games. Twitter's gaming division regularly compiles the most talked-about games on the platform with the social media juggernaut recently revealing its rankings for the start of 2022.

This year's opening months saw plenty of trends within both the world of gaming and the internet at large and Twitter often finds itself at the center of many of gaming's most popular trends. The start of 2022 saw the explosion in popularity of the browser-based daily word game Wordle while games like Genshin Impact have featured plenty of new characters and Apex Legends kicked off its 12th competitive season. Q1 of 2022 saw these games and more flourish on the platform as Twitter Gaming's Rishi Chadha revealed the top 10 most-tweeted games on the platform.

Genshin Impact continued to maintain its massive popularity on the platform by capturing the #1 spot while the surge of Wordle followed closely behind at #2. The previously-mentioned Apex Legends was not far behind landing at the #4 spot on the month. Other popular franchises like Final Fantasy and Minecraft also saw themselves finish within the Top 10 while Elden Ring, despite its massive success, only managed to secure a seventh-place finish.
