Twitter is showing Trending TV shows at the top of your timeline

Twitter TV

According to Techcrunch, Twitter is testing a new TV-functionality. A link to a popular TV show will appear on top of your timeline as a Twitter Card. The card will show the name of the show and related information about the show and related tweets.

Twitter has become the most prominent place for discussing TV shows and has been working on new features to benefit from this success for a while now.

The discovery of this new functionality was made by an intern at NBC called Anthony Geranio (ASG). I guess he  must be thrilled about the story being picked up Techcrunch.
