I think this is a really neat idea to get everybody pumped for the new season of ‘True Blood’, especially when you consider how huge social media is these days. You’ll be hard pressed to find anybody from the ‘True Blood’ fan base that doesn’t have a Facebook or Twitter account… several have both plus instagram, so it’s a perfect platform for this kind of event! And who doesn’t want some sneak peaks at the new season… especially when the ‘True Blood’ camp is always so closed lipped!
