A Minneapolis theater is all the tweet. The Guthrie Theater is now offering a special balcony section with “tweet seats”. Instead of having patrons turn off their phones, this theater is encouraging them to keep their phones on and tweet away.

A press release on the theater’s website says:

“The Guthrie Theater today announced that beginning December 27, the theater will offer its first-ever ‘Tweet Seats’ during four consecutive Thursday performances of The Servant of Two Masters, allowing social media users an opportunity to interact during the show. A limited number of seats located in a balcony level of the McGuire Proscenium in a section that will not be disruptive to other patrons will be designated as Tweet Seats.”
