TV Twitter Reactions: Fringe 5×12 “Liberty” 5×13 “An Enemy of Fate”


Screencap Source:

Fans went to Twitter and tweeted “KeepLookingUp” one hour before the series finale. This was the hashtag chosen by Fringenuity, but the fandom received a big surprise when Fox introduced a new hashtag for the second hour of the finale: “#WeCrossedtheLine.” Bravo Fox!! I don’t know about you, but I was floored when this occurred. The fact that Fox chose a hashtag that harks back to the fan’s first twitter event, “#CrosstheLine,” demonstrates that networks have changed dramatically in how they involve and recognize fans. Ratings still and will always be important when deciding the fate of a show, but fan support is gaining more and more attention. The tweets, collected by @angelamorales18, are a sample of the Twitter activity that is helping to revolutionize the television industry.
