The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
Welcome back for the fourth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog! With January ending quickly and February about to extend an extra 24 hours this (leap) year, we’re overjoyed to announce this week’s featured #FF Twitter account … a cross-platform Home Theater software application with social networking features, designed for the living-room TV.
Here, we will dive deeper into the Tweets of @boxee and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind the first ever Social Media Center!
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the first ever Social Media Center” in the same sentence. Sounds pretty interesting, right?

More about BOXEE
We believe TV should be personal. With a Boxee connected to your TV, you can watch any TV show from the Internet, movies from services like Netflix, VUDU, MUBI, and OpenFilm, and enjoy all the rest the Internet has to offer that will never make it to broadcast TV. We believe your TV should be connected to your friends. Boxee automatically delivers video recommendations from your friends on Facebook and Twitter to your TV and lets you share stuff with them from the click of the remote.
Here you will find a list of 25 accounts @boxee is following. They are all active users who we deem worthy of checking out, retweeting and following. Enjoy!
