Twitter Is Experimenting With New Live Events Platform, “DVR Mode” For Using Twitter With TV & More
“Costolo today touted Twitter’s position as the go-to second screen app, saying that if he’s watching a major event on television and doesn’t have Twitter on hand, he feels like he’s ‘watching [TV] with the volume off.'”
This article pretty much sums up Twitter’s plan on what’s to come. I’m glad they are focusing on cyber-bullying; it’s a problem that affects many users and can lead to very negative outcomes. Also, major props for teaming up with various TV networks to increase television show visibility during airtime. I can’t wait to see how second-screen takes off with all of this in mind.
Of course, from my thesis I found that people do enjoy tweeting about their favorite shows and discussing moments and characters from the show with people they did not know, along with family members, friends and coworkers. Through all of this, I’m excited to see the DVR mode in play. We’ll see if it can revolutionize the way people discuss TV shows.
