Twitter helps TV viewing become social
May 26th, 2008

Darren Waters of The BBC wrote an intriguing article recently regarding how Twitter is making television viewing more social again.

“Last night I was watching Eurovision with Twitter running on my
laptop. In real time, my Twitter friends and I shared comments and made observations about the event as it was happening.

Twitter was being used to exend the experience of watching the event together, but also for people to share links to sites with backstory, or explainers etc.

“Twitter plus TV = informed viewing.” Darren Waters
