The Tweet Seats

Young people don't go to the theaters anymore. (Hint for young people: it's like the movies, but live action - you know, performed on stages and such). What to do?

Curt Hopkins wrote an Ars Technica article about the latest in the effort to reel in the kids: Tweet Seats.

These are sections of a live theater or performance space’s seating set aside for audience members who wish to tweet on their phones or tablets during the performance. They are being advertised as safe harbor for the twitterati, where pulling out your gizmo is celebrated instead of frowned upon. The seats are often located in the back row of the seating area.


Maybe movie theaters should offer these!

That's exactly what movie theaters need - another reason for people to hate going there. Then again, I'd be surprised if movie theater patrons didn't already tweet (and talk, and surf, and fax, and facebook, and ...). I haven't been to a movie theater in years so I wouldn't know.
