viral advertising? - epsilon program
So apparently this site from san andreas has been updated recently: http://www.epsilonprogram.com/
they added a link to a twitter account below: http://twitter.com/EpsilonismToday it was made very recently - about a week ago, judging from the first tweet.
edit: I thought this was pretty interesting. These are the first few followers of that account:
https://twitter.com/EpsilonProgram - same site but in russian.
https://twitter.com/BoneCountyMIU - clearly a fake account - and here's his apparent youtube account: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQHj...SuN3q5INA/feed

I wouldn't be shocked if this turns out to be one of the first movements into heavier marketing for GTA V. I recall Rockstar making a twitter account for Tom Stubbs prior to the release of The Lost and Damned, so this isn't uncharted territory for them.
The Epsilon Program itself is GTA's satire on Scientology and had passing mentions on the radio in both San Andreas and IV, so it's no shock to be popping up again. I see no other reason for them to randomly add a twitter account for it out of the blue, let alone one called EpsilonismToday.

pretty interesting - rockstar was ahead of its time when it did this sort of advertising for the earlier installments of GTA, and now that it's actually a relevant form of advertising, i'm interested to see how far they take it!
btw the russian one isn't something official, i believe one of the fansites started it up. there's an article about cleaning the internet of furries and pony fuckers, and some stuff about playground.ru and gta.ru. so i think it's safe to say that can be ignored

It's hilarious but kind of annoying at the same time.
At least Kent Paul released 1 screenshot when they launched that campaign.
Hopefully the rest trickles out quickly.
