Deadline reports that Fox has entered into a content sharing partnership with the micro blogging website as part of an innovative promotional strategy to position their shows.

Additionally, Variety reports that ahead of another Fox show, Empire is now being streamed on Twitter at 7:30 pm US Time, half an hour ahead of its airing at 8 pm US Time. This way, Twitter is also facilitating discussion on every episode, involving cast members, journalists and influencers.

Deadline quotes Todd Swidler, Global Head, Live Video Business at Twitter, as saying, "We’re excited to partner with Fox to bring TV viewing and conversation even closer together. The discussion of TV shows has always taken place on Twitter and it is a natural evolution to add TV premieres and live pre-shows to our video experience."
