Twitter Television is the latest twist on the microblogging phenomenon to have captured people’s imagination, at least in Spain. Combining Twitter with TV, Twision, a new programme on the country’s Veo7 channel allows twitterers to interact with the presenters and their guests.
Thousands of people have been logging in to post tweets on any given subject which pop up in real time on the bottom of the TV screen during the show. US-based Twitter itself said Twision appeared to be the first show of its kind in the world. “It’s not backed by Twitter, which makes it more compelling,” said Twitter’s communications head Sean Garrett.
