A Community Community
Tuesday 12:00 AM on Yahoo

Community very early on involved twitter in the show, I'm sure you can recall "Old White Man Says" and "He tweeted iiiiiiiittttt!" and many others as well. It's also been a way to interact with the actors, writers, showrunner and producers. I joined twitter FOR Community, I wanted the inside scoop, I wanted to interact with the actors, hopefully get a reply and occasionally I have. But something else happened that I didn't expect, I started to interact with other fans. Since I joined over a year and a half ago I've met hundreds of fans, interacted with most of them and even become friends with many. If you haven't joined twitter yet and want to meet fans, talk about the show and even help in efforts to keep it going, you need to join the multitude of fans on twitter, you won't regret it.

I wish they had kept the Old White Man Says account going...

Twitter is going to play a huge role in ratings. It started after acquiring Bluefin Labs (a tv metrics start up) and struck up a great deal with Nielsen, the company responsible for TV ratings. They're going to look at activity during a show. So if you want to have a direct impact on the show (especially if your TV isn't recorded by Nielsen) you should be live tweeting it!

plus there's some cool fans who also live tweet it!

I agree that twitter is a great way to interact with the people involved with your favorite shows. You just have to get through all the stupid posts it mostly consists of. I once had neil Goldman comment on how awesome my community avatar was. As cool as that was, I'm not sure if it counteracts having to look at twitter responses on all the various tv shows.

I choose to stay away from things like twitter mainly cuz it involves a lot of people talking about uninteresting things (like what they just ate for lunch). For talking with other fans of shows I like to go to different forums, also that's why I like reading and replying to the comments on tv.com

Using the hashtags, such as #NBCCommunity, will keep you on topic so you don't have to read about your friends' meals. But aren't you curious what Alison Brie had for lunch?

Fair enough, I can definitely see that point of view, the group that I talk to on twitter is pretty great though, and getting hashtags trending to help the show can be a lot of fun :)
