Community‘s second season starts tonight on NBC, but the tech-savvy network is kicking things off a bit early. While the show starts at 8pm (7pm Central), NBC will do a “Twittersode” at 7pm. Get the details after the break.
Back in January we told you how NBC had set up Twitter accounts for some of the characters of Community. Now they are finally being used for something interesting. You can follow the events of Twitter episode at NBC.com or by following the official Twitter list of Community characters. The concept will be that over the course of the hour (leading up to the Season 2 premiere), the characters will interact in a way that tells a full story. This should be an interesting experiment. Below is what NBC has to say about the viral plan.
Welcome to the exclusive Community Twittersode, where your favorite study group gears up for their second year at Greendale Community College and prepares for their first class, Anthropology. So get in on the action and don’t forget to retweet and use the #NBCCommunity hashtag!
Check out the live Twittersode happening Thursday, 9/23 at 7pm EST/4pm PST!
