So, I love Game of Thrones. As such, I very much enjoy The Ringer’s Game of Thrones aftershow called Talk the Thrones. And yet I find it nearly impossible to watch each week after I watch Game of Thrones. Because Twitter gonna Twitter.
You see, each week after watching the show, I open Twitter to get the latest chatter. I keep hoping #TalkTheThrones will be right there for me to watch – this show runs exclusively on Twitter
, after all – but, alas. Because I watch the show a few hours after it airs, I’m often shit out of luck. Instead, I’m left searching for the show on Twitter. But that doesn’t really work
. Even “Game of Thrones”
never produces the result I want. And so I have to remember exactly
who produces the show and/or the right Twitter handles that have hopefully pinned the tweet with the show embed.
Twitter knows I love Game of Thrones. It need look no further than my tweet stream for all the signal they need. They should serve this up to me. Instead, it’s a scavenger hunt to find what I want. And even I often lose interest before I get there.
Related: Twitter is surprised each quarter that normal people aren’t signing up for and/or using their service.
I continue to be fascinating that what Facebook is so good at, Twitter is so bad at – and vice versa! But Twitter doesn’t have to be this bad at this. It’s so obvious. What am I missing?
