What does it take to be one of the best TV show Twitter accounts? We don’t think it’s that complicated a formula — you need to obviously promote your show and be active, but also have some fun with it in the process! Remember that the key focus of Twitter is engagement, and getting people to start conversations and have fun. Some TV show accounts just go on and list off information; other ones have obviously-canned responses or force the issue. You want to be fun, and you also want to be natural. Every now and then, it doesn’t hurt to imitate your title character.
Below, we’ve got our list at present of the five best TV accounts in the game — and of course links to follow them, if you so choose.
Jessica Jones (Netflix) – You gotta love any account that delivers a near-constant stream of snark and amazing GIFs. Also, bonus points for running the entire account seemingly in-character. By far the funniest account on Twitter, and it’s really not even close.
American Gods (Starz) – The new kids on the block, but in the past few weeks alone they’ve been both a great resource for insight on the show, and also for making fans feel incredibly involved with them and the rapidly-growing community.
Teen Wolf (MTV) – It’s fun, it’s fast-paced, it’s connected to the cast, and it’s incredibly active. It’s one of the reasons why the Teen Wolf community on Twitter is as active as it ultimately is. You can always tell the strength of a good account by how active they are when the show’s not even on the air.
Lucifer (Fox) – There are a ton of network TV shows — we’re looking especially to everyone over at The CW — who could be doing a lot more than they are to combine both the necessary TV-show promotion with the sense of humor and interaction with the fans. This account gets it, and allows people visiting to get a little bit of everything that they want.
BoJack Horseman (Netflix) – We would say pound for pound that Netflix probably has the best overall social team out of any network out there. With this show, you have an announce that is probably even more the character than the Jessica Jones account. Don’t worry, there is still necessary information, but you still probably come here the most for the laughs.
