Twision: Twitter Television Is Here! Well, In Spain Anyway.

Next Story

It's all well and good to demand secure electronic medical records, but when has your data ever been secure in the first place?

A year ago, there was a lot of hoopla surrounding a possible Twitter television show. So far, aside from a few networks in the U.S. testing out pulling in tweets to augment the watching of some reruns, and even a new show based on a Twitter account, we haven’t heard too much more about it. There was, for example, no Twitter reality show. But actually, there is a Twitter televison show. It’s just in Spain.

As Twitter’s new VP of Communications tweeted out recently, Twision is a Spanish show that debuted on the channel Veo7 last week. While it doesn’t exactly have a prime time slot (it’s on at midnight), it’s an hour-long program that lets viewers send in tweets live that two hosts then interact with. The Spanish site Terra has a bit more (translated).

As you can see from this site hosted by Veo7, the show takes place in a studio with two guys on laptops and a huge screen behind them to showcase tweets. The anchors also show videos and other content as shared on Twitter to talk about. The site features a stream of tweets coming in next to the video player. Below, find an episode embedded for your viewing pleasure (if you speak Spanish).
