– Expect to see even more references to Twitter on WWE television in the coming months. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Vince McMahon is a huge fan of it and has more ideas about how to integrate Twitter into WWE programming even further.
WWE announcers are encouraged to constantly reference Twitter, with the idea being that if they mention Twitter a lot at the beginning of shows, they will get topics trending worldwide and can talk about the topics even more.
At the 2012 Royal Rumble – WWE is planning to have superstars tweet right before they go through the curtain and enter the Rumble.
