Three short months ago we were warning executives against disclosing company information via tweets because the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) didn’t ‘get’ Twitter.

Will Twitter Ruin Netflix’s Venture Into Original TV Programming?

With Netflix’s release of all 13 episodes of its first-ever original TV series House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Kate Mara, and directed by David Fincher, comes the question of how social media will affect the company’s venture into social TV.

All the news about Netflix yesterday surrounded its decision to split its business in two, and rename its DVD service to “Qwikster”. But that was early in the day.

By a pot-smoking Elmo.

And so the news changed from Netflix’s business decision to focus instead on a kid who has quickly gone from being “About tired as shyt n i can’t sleep” to potentially getting offers from a mega-corp to buy his now-valuable Twitter username. I bet he’s trippin’.

Tweet Your Reality Show Predictions on Google TV

Google TVs have begun scuffing their boots on our Welcome Mats and integrating themselves into the lives & homes of the beautiful people of North America.  The Twitter feature makes it convenient to tweet about TV shows, as you watch them.  Sure, we could just look down at our laptops as we view our programs.  But it’s kind of nice to put all of our eggs in one basket, and see both Twitter and a live basketball game living in harmony, on the same screen.
