HOW TO HOLD A (SUCCESSFUL) “TWEET SEATS” EVENT IN THE THEATER

9/14/2011

Whether you are a firm believer, casually interested, or crazy-never-in-my-theater against, “Tweet Seats,” are being experimented with at venues across the world. The segmentation of specific seats in a venue to be used by people with their smartphones *during* performance is only a couple of years old, but has created two sharply divided groups. Let’s not debate either side here. For the purposes of this article, you’re considering doing a tweet seats-style event, and are looking for some best practices to make it work (and not tick off the other people in the audience much). I’m also going to assume that you have a good familiarity with Twitter, and have a #hashtag for your event, show, or organization.
