@MobCityTNT: the first ever screenplay adapted for twitter.


To capitalize on peoples' habits of tweeting whilst watching TV, TNT's period piece Mob City created what they are referring to as the first ever (gulp) adaptweetion.

The activation, (sorry but I can't type that word again) in partnership with Deutsch NY, allows the Mob City story to unfold over three days, all ramping up to the December 4th premiere on TNT.

If you don't catch the livetweeting, no worries, there's a storified-like version of it here on mobscript.com.

Fun idea, if not a wee bit anachronistic. Tweeting about a story that takes place in the 1940's. That's almost like a Mad Man character having their own twitter account!

Oh wait...
