Sports, drama, reality shows or political events – you name it, someone is tweeting about it. A UK-based blog revealed that 40 percent of evening traffic on Twitter is TV-related, and a video on the official Twitter blog says many TV-related conversations happen through #hashtags, @replies to the program or other users, or through “curated tweets” that get pulled into chats moderated by news networks and blogs.
When I see a program being talked about on Twitter, I’m more likely to watch it, or at least check it out. And when I’m watching TV, I typically have the Twitter app open on my BlackBerry Z10 or Blaq for my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet so I can watch the online conversations happening in real time. It’s fun reading the trash-talk during sporting events and it’s a great way to track the score while on the go. I also love reading and commenting about plot twists and character mishaps during primetime – just no #spoilers please!
