So I heard today that during the Oscars, Grammys, the Super Bowl and all of those other big tv events – that 70,000 tweets are tweeted during those events. Watching TV has become an active activity. One experts says that we are now crowdsourcing professionally programmed and developed shows with created content from twitter and Facebook.
I have written about the Twitter Tickertape before, but people are actually talking about it now. It is augmented programming – which makes for a richer experience. It’s really no different than watching a TV show 20 years ago while being on the phone with a friend from school.
Active TV Watching and the Twitter Tickertape, now go hand in hand.
