'Community' exclusive: Twittersode to precede season premiere

Community-castImage Credit: Mitchell Haaseth/NBCRemember when we said that the Thursday at 8 p.m. timeslot war would be fun to watch play out on Twitter? That was before we even knew about this. NBC’s Community will┬ádebut a “Twittersode” just prior to the comedy’s Sept. 23 return. Over the course of 80 tweets (starting at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT Thursday), the characters will communicate back and forth in what’s described as a “prequel” scene to their return to Greendale Community College as sophomores. They’ll make arrangements for their first meet-up of the year, as well as preparations for their first class, Anthropology 101 (taught by guest star Betty White). You can watch the Twittersode unfold on http://www.NBC.COM/CommunityTwittersode, or, of course, in your Twitter feed, if you follow the individual characters. (Here’s that excuse you’ve been needing to check out @AnniesB00bs. Full list of the characters’ official Twitter accounts below.)

What do you think? Is this a great way to get #NBCCommunity to trend on premiere night (clever tweets should yield some RTs and replies)? Or does your love for these characters know some boundaries (like 140-characters or less)?

    And I thought I couldn’t love them MORE today, with the DVD/soundtrack having come out. Then they go and do this?! I’m ready to go and following all of them!

    I love Community but this is going to make some fans even more delusional. I could see someone really thinking that these characters are real.lol!

      I also hate Twitter. I love my Facebook but Twitter just never caught with me or my friends. Sorry Twitter fans.

    • Brooke

      I don’t really understand the Twitter hate. Could someone explain why Twitter’s so hated?

      • Kleg

        Brooke– It’s the old people who fear technology that hate Twitter

    • miVi3k

      Personally I’m a regular Twitter user but understand how some people, regardless of age, seem to hate it.

      Looks like there’s probably going to be a Twitter feed on their site so you don’t have to log on to Twitter to see it

    Well Sara, what did you expect. I mean he was 11 years older than you and you met him in the miltary. Wait, I’m getting my spam messages mixed up.
