Since the announcement of Animal Crossing: New Leaf in 2010, the Animal Crossing series has been featured on various social media accounts operated by Nintendo. As of 2020, official social media accounts for the Animal Crossing series exist on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Additionally, the series is featured in various posts on Nintendo's official accounts on said platforms, as well as on their YouTube channel.

It should be noted that this page does not cover non-English Animal Crossing social media accounts if an English alternative exists.


There are three official English-language Animal Crossing Twitter accounts: The North American @animalcrossing (Isabelle) and @pocket_camp (Pocket_camp), and the UK-based @AC_Isabelle (Isabelle UK).


Profile picture for @animalcrossing as of August 2020

@animalcrossing regularly posts content relating to the Animal Crossing series, including gameplay screenshots and trailers. The account is fictionally operated by Isabelle, and its posts are from her in-universe point of view and are in-character. The account was created in April 2013 and was "operated" by Isabelle until prior to the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, when Tom Nook became the fictional account operator, tweeting in character like Isabelle. In July 2020 Isabelle returned as the fictional account operator.
