Twitter TV Show A No-Go, So Much for Summoning the Twitterazzi
Is Twitter coming to a TV near you?
UPDATE | May 26th — Nope it ain't. Not according to Twitter founder @Biz:
Just to be clear, Twitter is not making a television show. Some Hollywood folks are developing something that leverages Twitter and they are extremely enthusiastic as evidenced by all the media hubbub yesterday and today. We have little to do with their efforts but we wish them success.
PREVIOUSLY — In a woop-dee-doo, fun-filled format that perfectly reflects the most banal, and plastinated parts of our narcissistweet culture, the show will put Twitter users in head-to-head battles "on the trail of celebrities".
The "competition", such as it is, sounds like little more than a platform to propagate the latest instantiation of celebrity-hungry stalkers in an exciting and new format.
The coming of the Twitterazzi is upon us...
The social-networking service has teamed with Reveille productions and Brillstein (BRILL'-steen) Entertainment to develop an unscripted series based on the site, which invites brief, 140-character postings from members all over the world.
The show would harness Twitter to put players on the trail of celebrities in a competitive format.
