Calvin Ayre all a-Twitter

by Rob Lewis

Once Vancouver-based gaming tycoon Calvin Ayre seems to be preparing himself for a return from exile in Antigua. As one of the online gaming industry’s most successful pioneers, Ayre disappeared to his Central America safehouse and seemed to be retired from active Bodog duty.

Well, Ayre has been active on Twitter (@CalvinAyre) over the past two months and although most of his tweets are about workouts and social media research, he has hinted at lots of upcoming announcements. According to a recent article on iGaming, Ayre's involvement with Bodog is limited to licensing deals through but he is involved in the launch of a new poker network due to be announced in September.

According to Ayre's personal homepage, he's also working on a new media project tagged "Do You Have Enemies?" which is scheduled to launch this fall. Interesting angle for Ayre as we know he has his fair share of enemies in North America - the Vancouver Sun's David Baines is no where to be seen in Ayre's Twitter follower stream.
