Among Us finds its way to Twitter to tease new map

You'd think that a game as popular as Among Us would have some kind of Twitter presence, but up until very recently, that wasn't true. In fact, a dedicated account for Among Us didn't appear until this week, and developer Innersloth is getting things rolling with a bang by making that account's very first tweet a teaser for the game's next map.
