Join us in our first ever Twitter-periment

Tyler Metzger

The tech-savvy editorial team here at will be performing our first Twitter-periment Nov. 24, and we want you to join us.

Join us on Twitter as we watch Frontline's

Here’s the plan: At 8 p.m. Central, PBS will debut “The Card Game,” a Frontline documentary about the impact — and future of — the consumer loan industry. Our team will all, of course, be glued to it, and we’ll be broadcasting our reactions on Twitter as the program progresses. After it’s all over, we’ll compile the reactions and post them to our blog.

To read our brilliant thoughts, all you have to do is go to and type “#cardgame” into the search box. You’ll then be able to check out our feedback in real time. You can use TweetChat, TwitterFall and to find the topic, too.

Additionally, you can read our thoughts on our individual Twitter pages (@takingcharge, @jeremymsimon, @connie_p, @mattsnews, @tylermetzger).

If you have a Twitter account, we want you to join in! Like I said, just put #cardgame in your tweet, and you’ll be able to share your thoughts about the Frontline doc with us and the rest of the world. And if you aren’t on Twitter yet, get out of the ’90s and join. 🙂

According to Frontline’s Web site, the series “remains committed to providing a primetime venue for engaging documentaries that fully explore and illuminate the critical issues of our times.”

Let’s hope they don’t let us down. Check your local PBS listings on its Web site to find out when “The Card Game” is playing in your area.
