Twitter acts as a social soundtrack for the TV, which is still the media king. That allows chains and brands reach the viewers in real time right in the moment when a program is on the air. 95% of online conversations about television take place in Twitter.

The relationship between Twitter and TV is symbiotic . The users of the platform like to comment on what ‘s going on television, and the creators of the programs increasingly use the network to add new content and dialogues according to what the viewers like.

The introduction of a live hashtag can encourage the participation of viewers to see what is happening on Twitter and to interact . In this sense, the social network is responsible for working with the media to quantify the impact that the conversations that occur in their domains have on the behavior of the spectators.
