TV audiences in India and across the world love to share their viewing experiences on Twitter. They use the platform to get the latest updates about their favourite TV shows and to interact with their favorite actors. Now TV viewers have an opportunity to influence the making of a TV show via Twitter. Fans in India can #TweetAFunnyStory all month and stand a chance to contribute in the making of the next SAB TV (@SABTV) show, Khidki.
