Before Communityâ€™s Season 2 premiere Thursday night, the people behind the TV show will dish out laughs in 140-character bursts during a â€œTwittersode.â€
Thatâ€™s a Twitter episode. No, the creators of the comedy, which follows disbarred lawyer Jeff Winger and his interactions with students when he starts attending community college, wonâ€™t be posting video links on their Twitter accounts. Instead, Communityâ€™s characters will tweet to each other as they prepare for the first class of the new semester. Fans can watch the action on NBCâ€™s Community Twittersode site, or follow the charactersâ€™ Twitter accounts.
There are few shows on TV like Community. When I heard they were doing a “Twittersode,” I became intrigued. I pitched this piece on the experiment to Wired‘s Underwire blog, and it’s now online. Read it, and be sure to check out the Twittersode… if you dare!
