The Twitter blog says the company is not making a reality TV show as was widely reported yesterday, including on TechJournal South.
The Twitter blog says:
“Just to be clear, Twitter is not making a television show. Some Hollywood folks are developing something that leverages Twitter and they are extremely enthusiastic as evidenced by all the media hubbub yesterday and today. We have little to do with their efforts but we wish them success.”
Film and TV star Ashton Kutcher, who gave the micro-blogging site reams of publicity when he challenged CNN to a contest to see who could get the most Twitter followers (he won) worried that the proposed reality show would lead to celebrity stalking.
The Twitter folks say the entertainment industry’s interest in Twitter is just another way “it enriches the ecosystem for everyone.”
