Earlier today a new YouTube account appeared on Twitter called 'YouTube Gaming', and it had a single mysterious tweet. No announcement came with it, no explanation, no hints about what to expect.

While it may be a freebie, the goal seems pretty clear, to encourage more drivers to sign up to the taxi-disrupter.
