Twitter is an ideal platform for this communal TV experience, allowing us to share and view thoughts between ourselves, the actors, the writers, and the Twitter feed for the TV show itself. Below is a list of TV shows that actively tweet and communicate with their collaborators and fans.
Twitter Bio: The official Twitter for ABC's Scandal. Returns Thursday, September 25 at 9|8c on ABC.
Need for Feed: When Scandal airs, its Twitter fires up so big and fast, even Olivia would have a hard time quenching these flames.

Twitter Bio: The official Twitter handle for@ABCFamily's Pretty Little Liars. Don't miss all new episodes Tuesdays at 8pm/7c on @ABCFamily!
Need for Feed: The Pretty Little Liars feed takes the fun approach of tweeting as if it's in the show itself … almost as if it's A herself. Hmmm … could it be?

Twitter Bio: The official Twitter profile for #Hannibal.
Need for Feed: Fannibals are some of the hardest followers to satiate. They crave blood … as in, blood-splattered images. Other than the behind-the-scenes pics and screen shots, the feed also writes in a very Dr. Lecter-esque tone, bringing an element of creep to the Twitter-sphere.
