People are unpredictable and as a result, so is Twitter!
An Australian movie theater chain introduced a live Twitter feed on their website in an effort to
anger parents everywhere be cool and modern (or something like that), but the plan totally backfired.
We guess the company wanted to get feedback on the movies they were playing in real time, but didn't anticipate how immature the internet is. Here are a couple of tweets about The Descendants and War Horse that the theater displayed on the site:
"Shailene Woodley's cleavage deserves an Oscar nod for their work in The Descendants"
"Went to see The Descendants … George Clooney is so f—-ing hot"
"I get that the guy and horse from War Horse were best friends but do you think they were also friends with benefits?"
Critics called the tweets "totally inappropriate" and Cineplex Australia owner Leo Catalano quickly removed the feeds. "We want no part of it. It shouldn't be on there," he said.
We couldn't agree more, but would like like to know WHY he ever thought this was a good idea in the first place.
People aren't exactly known for biting their tongue when they are typing their thoughts into cyber space. In fact, when people have a computer screen and username to hide behind, most of them LOVE to say totally inappropriate, offensive and, sometimes, downright hateful things on the internet. Just check out the comments on this site! LOLz!
Next time this company tries to get more interactive, we recommend moderating a comment board if they have interest in keeping their site family friendly.
