Twitter on TV?

Posted: 08:14 AM ET

Just when you thought reality TV had done it all, Twitter throws its virtual hat into the ring. The web site "has partnered with Reveille and Brillstein Entertainment to develop an unscripted TV skein described as 'putting ordinary people on the trail of celebrities in a revolutionary competitive format,'" according to Variety.com.

“Twitter is transforming the way people communicate, especially celebrities and their fans,” Reveille managing director Howard T. Owens said in a statement Monday. Owens expects the new project to “unlock Twitter’s potential on TV.”

However, Twitter's official blog stems any thoughts of a solely-twitterific show. Here's their statement:

Regarding the Reveille and Brillstein project reported today, we have a lightweight, non-exclusive, agreement with the producers which helps them move forward more freely.

So basically they have nothing - yet. But the world is abuzz with possibilities of Twitter TV. What do you think? Should Twitter become the sole "Survivor" means of communication on the island? Should the "Bachelorette" judge her men based on their 140-character love letters? Or have you had enough of this micro-blogging phenomenon?

I really do not understand how so many can enjoy using twitter...let's just keep it online please.

I think it is stupid and done with all of reality TV.

if it goes on tv twitter will die off.

I, for one, have had enough of this micro-blogging phenomenon. The news media (including this article) gives entirely too much attention to this single web site (which would have been nothing more than an obscure failure if not for the daily free advertisement since an editor first caught wind of it.) There are far more interesting and important technologies to cover. Sadly, if a person's knowledge of the Internet is limited to what is published by the news media, they might think the only things that exist are Twitter, Facebook, Google and iPhones. Come on editors! Put down your iPhones and stop texting your friends.

I have yet to see any value in Twitter. Twitter is for twits.

An intriguing discussion may be valued at comment. I do believe you should write on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally persons are not enough to communicate on such topics. Yet another. Cheers
