Twitter Fills Movie Theater Seats According to Survey

There’s a reason there’s so much chatter from Hollywood about Twitter: it sells tickets.

Social media definitely has it’s influence when used organically.  I recently made a decision to go see a movie based on what a friend said about the film on Facebook.

Whether it’s Instagram, Twitter Parties, Facebook and more, social media is an essential tool for your public relations toolbox.  Feel free to contact CMP Media Cafe about setting up a Twitter Party for your product or a free social media consultation.
