Ahh, the tweet seat. Those block of seats reserved for smartphone-addicted patrons of movies, the theater and sporting events. While they’re not everywhere yet, more and more venues are encouraging patrons to bring their phones and tweet during events – but only in specific seating, so as not to bother the other guests.
Sounds like a neat idea (although it definitely has its detractors), but should it be patentable? One company seems to think so, and they’re gunning for at least one event venue with their “ownership” of tweet seats.
Did you know that 14 profiles on Twitter each have more than 10 million followers?
Yep, they’re all celebrities or world figures, as you might have guessed (with one exception: YouTube), and while there is inevitably some crossover, collectively they command an audience of almost two hundred million users.
Here’s one curio that has remained surprisingly constant: the very top of Twitter’s most popular list skews heavily towards the female luminaries of popular music, with seven of the top ten being ladies who have racked up chart success. But what about the major players in television and sports? Who rules the roost there?
How will you be spending April 15? Don’t say ‘submitting my taxes last minute’ if you’re in the U.S. because you couldn’t anyway – it’s a Sunday. If you’re lucky enough to be located in a participating area, you may want to consider following Tony Hawk’s scavenger hunt on Twitter – the prizes are pretty saw-weet.
Are you a history buff? If so, you should check out the Titanic twitter feed. It allows followers to “experience Titanic’s epic journey with day-by-day and minute-by-minute tweets as if from on board the ship itself.” A little spooky, but very cool.
