The Ten Best Confused #GATV Tweets
Grand Theft Auto 5 is all over the Internet like white on rice. It’s hard to avoid that kind of saturation with such a hotly anticipated game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with all the fervor.
We already reported on the GAT V DLC pack for Saints Row IV (it’s free on Steam! Go get it!), but we’ve only begun to scrape the surface when it comes to the Twitter circus this is causing. With two very similar hashtags – #GTAV for Grand Theft Auto V, and #GATV for the SRIV DLC pack – you’re bound to get some overlap — something Deep Silver was definitely counting on.
Here’s a sample of some of the best confused tweets coming out of today’s events. For a full list of GAT V tweets, check out the promoted trend on Twitter.

I bet Grand Theft Auto 5 will be sold out, too.
I think that no one has realized that #GATV is misspelled is what’s wrong with society.
