Second screen > first screen. Have no idea what’s going on in this movie I’ve wanted to watch for years but the tweets are delicious.— Dan Frommer (@fromedome) October 27, 2012
This happens to me a lot. I’ll be watching a program on TV with my Twitter open but focusing more on the Twitter stream than than the TV. The TV gets relegated to background noise.
We will gravitate our eyes to whatever screen is more exciting at the time. Many times the conversation dominates the content. Other times, such as during real-time events, our eyes go back and forth between screens but the TV gets the most attention.
