MTV Promotes ‘Scream’ With Mysterious Emoji Tweets

screamMTV has picked up “Scream,” a horror series based on the Wes Craven film franchise. And then they promoted it with emojis. Targeting media outlets and TV people in general, they sent a slew of tweets with scary movie inspired emojis, a phone number, and a hashtag.

According to various people on Twitter, that phone number picks up and asks you “Do you like scary movies?” in homage to the classic line in the original. But being a neurotic New Yorker, there was no way I was calling a random California area code to verify that for this blog post. Plus, it’s sort of creepy.

Fans, who have been waiting for this pick-up announcement since filming was announced in April, have started using Instagram to spread the number and Vine to record their screams. Here’s Perez Hilton:

According to Variety:

This show stars newcomers Willa Fitzgerald (“Alpha House,” “Royal Pains”), Amy Forsyth (“Torment,” “Reign”), John Karna (“Premature,” “The Neighbors”), Carlson Young (“Key and Peele,” “The Kroll Show”) and Amadeus Serafini. “Faking It’s” Jamie Travis directed the pilot. Exec producer Jill Blotevogel (“Harper’s Island,” “Ravenswood”) wrote the script originally penned by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin (“Criminal Minds,” “The Event,” and “Revenge”)…Under the Dimension TV production umbrella, Harvey and Bob Weinstein will executive produce. Additional executive producers include Wes Craven, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Konrad. Matthew Signer and Keith Levine are producers.

It has not been confirmed yet if Ghostface will return for the series.

Among award shows, Premio Lo Nuestro sees most engaged Twitter audience

premio.aiTwo weeks ago, we wrote about three social activations driving the Premio Lo Nuestro Latin  Music Awards. While the show did not drive as much social volume as Sunday night’s Oscars (Two words: Ellen selfie), according to Nielsen SocialGuide Premio Lo Nuestro saw a more engaged Twitter audience (4.9 tweets per unique) than the People’s Choice Awards (4.1), Oscars (4.0), and Golden Globe Awards (3.3).

More isn’t always better, then.

Noche de Estrellas, the red carpet show that preceded Premio Lo Nuestro, faired even better against its competition, drivng 5.7 tweets per unique. This is compared to sub-two tweets per unique numbers for each of the three main Oscar red carpet shows.

“We listen to and engage our audiences on the platforms they want to be on whether Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat or Twitter,” David Beck, senior vice president and general manager, Social Media, Univision told Lost Remote. “We offer them amazing opportunities to connect directly with their favorite artists–like asking them questions on the red carpet via Instagram video.” Read more
