If you are a huge True Blood fan as much as I am and you also have an addiction to Twitter then you probably already know about Blood Bites. I didn’t know about it until this week thanks to Sam Merlotte, the role player that is.
Every Wednesday night you can go to the Blood Bites website or you can just watch them tweeting live.
The fun part about it was even though it was probably a 5 or 10 minute scene in the show, it took an hour to tweet out but what made it fun was that they were tweeting what they were thinking and how they were feeling and who they were looking at. It was like reading a novel.
Occasionally some other True Blood role-player would role-play on my list but they weren’t a part of the “show” so they most likely didn’t show up on the “Blood Bites” website.
I didn’t even know about this until now and I kick myself in the pants for not knowing but I really wasn’t into Twitter until very recently so how could I have known. After all, nobody told me about it. I also don’t remember seeing anything advertised on HBO about it.
Hopefully if you are a fan of the show and wouldn’t mind seeing them role-playing in Twitter then use my list . I have all of the True Blood role players, well, I might be missing some, I don’t know. I keep finding out every day that there is someone I didn’t have in there so I add them. Some of them require permission to view their tweets too which I found out when I wasn’t seeing both sides of a conversation even though I was following them and they were on my True Blood list.
What is an easier way to see their live tweets is using TweetDeck or some program or website that streams the tweets as they are tweeted so you don’t have to keep refreshing the page.
They don’t just role-play on certain days, they role-play all freakin’ day long. I’m glued to TweetDeck all day now, I should be doing other things but I can’t peel my eyes off the True Blood list lol. It’s like I’m addicted to that one list of mine, I don’t care about anything anyone else is saying on Twitter except for the role players lol.
I wonder if any other show does this.
Note that the role players and True Blood on Twitter is not affiliated with True Blood or HBO.
