12 Days of Viral – DAY TWO

by Scott Caldwell

On the second day of viral, my movie gave to me…..


A Twitter account with the truth.





The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Well, maybe a little more. At least this seems to be the way to go with newer Twitter accounts. You can go back to some of the older Twitter accounts (9, District 9, and 2012) and see them posting about things from the actual movie they are promoting. You can read a bout Charlie Frost’s Winnebago or Christopher’s disgust towards MNU.


But the newer one’s are taking it a step further. If you follow films such as Surrogates, The Crazies, and even Paranormal Activity, they are using the tactics of letting you know the truth. Not parts of the film, but actual elements of the film that are possible. Robotics. Biochemicals. Even how people are reacting towards a film. These are things that are happening on the news so they put it in your head, to just add to what you believe to begin with. Hell, they may even pick up those that follow such fears and create a new fan.





A tweet like the one above may get some activists to follow you, not knowing that it’s a site for a movie. But then again, that’s one of the things with a viral campaign. You need to make it as real as you can.
