Live Tweet Fan Event: The OA - Join Us 3/27

Written by The Original Angel
When a streaming service drops episodes of a series, it's hard for fans to know when to tweet; not everyone watches the whole season at the same time. Sometimes selected times are scheduled. SciFi Vision has decided to host its own fan event for the series. It would be great if you could join, but even if you can't, reposting would be very helpful to help spread the word. The event will take place Wednesday 3/27 at 8pm ET/5pm PT. We will also soon be discussing the episodes in depth via our podcast Fandom Access.

The OA Live Tweet Fan Event

Read on for the full instructions as well as what a live tweet is if you have never participated in one before.

A live-tweet is when fans (and sometimes the cast and crew) post comments, opinions, and sometimes memes about an event (in this case a television show) on Twitter while it's happening in real-time. It usually takes place during the first airing of a show during one or more specific time zones. When there isn't an official air date because it's on a streaming service, it sometimes is scheduled at a specific date and time.

A unique hashtag is chosen to use during the event to try to get it trending. Don't use the special hashtag until the time of the event for the best results. Also each tweet should use only that hashtag, because hashtags don't count torwards trending if you use more than one. If you see me using them during the event, it is for more promotion so hopefully more people see it. Also, please tell as many people as you can about it!

Be sure to tag @netflix and/or @the_oa in your tweets when you can so they will see it. If you tag us, @scifivision, you may get your tweet featured!
