THE LAST LEG
Satirical live TV presents a huge opportunity as well as a challenge for social media. Liberty842 run The Last Leg’s social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook, ensuring risk is managed and audience buzz is amplified through viewer social networks.
The Last Leg incorporates Twitter into the show with its audience tweeting in questions using the hashtag #isitok. There are also regular Twitter polls, generating trending topics and interest from those not tuned in.
People of Twitter, we applaud you. #dickhunt is now trending 😂😂👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
