Twitter is arguably the top social network when it comes to generating discussion around what’s on TV. Whether it’s a televised sports game or the latest episode of “The Bachelor” or a shocking season finale from “The Walking Dead”, users watch it and discuss it on Twitter. A lot. Nielsen found that during the 2015-2016 TV season, nearly 1 billion TV-related Tweets were sent in the U.S. alone.

Twitter’s immediacy helps it to stay relevant in this role. Sure, big sports games are massive on the platform, but what about TV Series? Twitter users love TV series, and live tweeting has become a source of much engagement on the platform and a huge opportunity for earned media.
