Syfy’s popular series Haven will become the first television series to create a storyline that flows between the show itself and the micro-blogging service Twitter when it launches a special seven-episode arc beginning Friday, August 12, at 10PM (ET/PT).
“The Haven writers and producers have done an amazing job of crafting a story line that seamlessly moves between the TV show and Twitter,” said Craig Engler, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Syfy Digital. “Although there have been simple integrations before, no one has fully and organically integrated Twitter into the fabric of the show in the way Haven is doing. If you watch Haven and use Twitter, you’re in for a real treat.”
Ok, I’ve got all the hookups seemingly working (I’m thinking of working a somewhat different interface for Facebook though), and Sci-Fi Storm is now on both Twitter and Facebook! Follow us @scifistorm on Twitter, and/or Facebook (I hope to shorten that URL later, but need followers). Our headlines with links will appear there, as well as other quips, notes, reminders, etc.
But there is a special bonus – I will be down at Universal Studios Orlando next Sunday and Monday for a SyFy press event, and I will be posting updates, pictures and maybe even a video or two via those channels (the pics and video may be Facebook only, not sure) of the panels, as well as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and maybe a bit of the RIP Tour of Halloween Horror Nights! It all depends on the batteries…so follow us on both, and keep an eye out for special updates on Sunday and Monday!
