“Glee,” “Fringe” Getting Twittered

@FoxBroadcasting is bringing Twitter to primetime this week, via repeats of #glee and #fringe. Cast and producers from both shows will log on to Twitter during airings of both shows (which Fox has dubbed “tweet-peats“); those tweets will then be simultaneously telecast in a lower-third scroll on Fox. More and more, actors have to compete against scrolling words onscreen. If I were a director of photographer who spent his or life constructing shots, only to have them violated by twitter scrolls, I’m not sure I’d be happy in today’s TV-land.
