Recent CBS press release showed off the new Twitter features they are using this year for Big Brother. They are rolling out a new website called Big Brother Connect (http://connect.cbs.com/shows/big-brother). The website aggregates live social streams, gives you hashtag-driven polls and give the crazy fans a chance to have their tweets appear during the Thursday Night Live Show. This is may be in response to ABC’s Big Brother Clone The Glass House which uses Twitter Extensively or it could be the fact that so many Big Brother fans are using Twitter (Past House guests as well). On top of this they will be offering a new web chat, expanded videos, and twitter game called “Flock to Unlock”
CBS Big Brother Live Chat
Weekly Live Chat at CBS.com, this will include Big Brother Houseguests (not sure if they’re current BB14 players or Big Brother Alumni) and series experts. Sadly Simon and Dawg were not asked by CBS to participate in this chat as experts.
HOH Pictures “Flock to Unlock”
“Flock to Unlock” allows fans to “use the power of Twitter to access exclusive photos from inside the house taken by that week’s Head of Household. Once enough fans tweet #BigBrotherHoH, the photos will be unlocked for everyone to see on CBS.com.” Basically they are making XX amount of people tweet out #BigBrotherHOH in order for them to show us the HOH pictures this year.
