Caprica – The End Began on Twitter, ReallyJanuary 25, 2010
We know how the story ends. The population of Caprica and the other colonies will be wiped out in 58 years, by the race of technological beings they create. But we the viewers want to watch this society lay the seeds of its own destruction. At least that’s what the show runners are hoping will draw us in. So how amusing it is that they are using social media’s latest craze, Twitter, to engage us.
Serge, the robot butler from the Graystone’s house, now has his own account on Twitter. And he’s funny.
I control many functions in the Graystone house, including security, media interfaces and vacuuming.
I can cancel security clearances. I can cancel them efficiently and coolly. Oh, I can cancel them.
Guess what guys? When your vacuum cleaner has more followers than you, you’re doomed!
