The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences wants celebrities to tweet during this years Oscars. Celebrities are going to be able to use a new social media feature that lets them take pictures backstage and post them instantly online. The feature will be called ‘magic mirror’ and will be similar to photobooth. This feature is cool because backstage is restricted from the press and photographers, so pictures are never released from behind the scenes and will give fans a more interactive experiance. I think social media is going to become part of many live events, it’s already integrated into MMA pay-per-views and Supercross races. These shows allow fans to tweet in pictures and status’ that they sometimes air on television. On another note, I read that they were creating an app for this years Oscars for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. That information is located here.
The Magic Mirror is “giving access to fans at home a part of the show they never got to experience before,” Twitter spokeswoman Elaine Filadelfo said Friday.
