Those of you who watched last night’s Breaking Bad (S5E6) might have noticed a cool new feature that debuted during that episode that we will be rolling out over the next few weeks for all of our shows: VIP Feeds.VIP feeds are Sidecastr for iPad categories that showcase unfiltered, real-time social content posted during the show by one or more featured sources or contributors. We can mix and match feeds into any grouping that makes sense, for example: Cast Tweets, Superfans, Network Posts, Celebrity Posts, etc. Unlike our normal categories, our users can reply but generally not post a top level sidecast into one of these categories. Another difference is that the social content aggregated in VIP feeds are unfiltered posts by the VIP sources rather than being superfan filtered like the external posts going into our regular categories. But as with any of our categories, all content is synced to the moment you are watching, whether live or time shifted, you can add, remove, and rearrange VIP categories like any other, and your replies and ‘likes’ can be fed to twitter as @replies and retweets.
Tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of New York City will feature a new VIP category called ‘CAST Tweets’ and feature live tweets during the show from the Real Housewives themselves. Let us know what you think!
