Fox's Fringe "Twitter on TV" Experiment Irks Fans

"Last week we reported on what sounded like a cool experiment to mix social media with television. Fox's idea of "tweet-peats" would combine reruns of popular new shows Fringe and Glee, with producers and members of the cast tweeting their show commentary as the episodes rolled.
