Pirates of the Twittersphere


The public domain is exactly that – once you say something, it’s out there, and you’d better believe people are ready to find it. Case in point? @omgamandaa updated her Twitter stream asking for help in tracking down a place to download Adventureland, a new Miramax comedy. Miramax dropped her a Tweet back gently asking her to take the moral high ground, and tagging the FBI into the conversation. And after she decided to call off the torrent-hunt, they proceeded to offer Amanda two free tickets to see the movie at her local cinema.

This is great example of a brand using social media properly, not being afraid to tackle a thorny subject and winning fans online. Good work.

Looks like @omgamandaa has protected her Twitter account. What’ll Miramax do the next time she tweets?

Honestly, I’d wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve got her IP address on file, and are now monitoring a whole load of their torrent trackers for it. And they’ve got her real life address from sending the free ticket, so there’ll no doubt be a knock on the door if she carrier on regardless!

Or maybe I’m just being paranoid on her behalf …
