As Filmfare Awards are not broadcast live on television, Twitter became the go-to place for all real-time updates, from star arrivals on the red carpet to the highly-anticipated announcements of award winners to live commentary around the performances on the big stage from the celebrity audience. Filmfare (@filmfare) and ZoOm TV (@ZoomTV) used a Twitter Mirror, Vine and other videos to bring the best of the evening to their followers on Twitter.
