Chances are if you get a lot of your news and entertainment online, you’re probably using one or more of the “social networks” like MySpace or Facebook. If so, you’re also probably using one of the fastest growing online destinations where people interact and “follow” their favorite friends and celebrities. I’m talking, of course, about Twitter.
We’ve got a Twitter account of our very own here at The Flickcast and we’re not alone. Many companies have established a presence on Twitter and send out updates, or ‘Tweets”, whenever they have something new to say or, in our case and many other sites similar to ours, when a new article is published. Many of these companies and celebrities have a huge following on Twitter, so its no surprise that one of them would partner with Twitter for the premiere of its brand new movie.
That’s just what The Weinstein Company is doing next week in conjunction with the premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s latest film Inglourious Basterds. According to the company, guests at the Hollywood premiere of the film will “be able to see timely conversations, opinions and experiences as they emerge from the red carpet on special large screens at the premiere and at the exclusive after-party. Twitter-users at home and on mobile devices around the globe can even interact.”
Biz Stone, Twitter co-founder, is equally as excited for the event, saying: “The Weinstein Company’s idea to throw the first ever Red Carpet Tweet-Up for this premiere is brilliant and I’m looking forward to it,” So, if you’re a fan of Tarantino, looking forward to his latest film and love to “Tweet,” be sure to fire up your favorite Twitter application next Tuesday for the Red Carpet Tweet-up and join in the fun.
