How to Use Social Media Like a Rockstar [Podcast]

On today’s Morning Media Menu (MP3 link), GalleyCat editor Jason Boog and I talked about the Flaming Lips’ lead singer on Twitter, Syfy’s upcoming series and massively multiplayer online game, and how to share books and eBooks with our troops for Memorial Day.

Nobody uses Twitter quite like Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne, except maybe Kanye West. In the podcast, we discuss how the life of a journalist online is much less colorful than that of a rockstar.

We also discussed how the SyFy network will collaborate with a gaming company for their new show, Defiance. It’s the most interesting use of social TV that we’ve seen so far, presenting new opportunities for developers, writers, and advertisers, not to mention viewers.

As you head out for the three-day weekend, don’t forget our that our troops overseas need some entertainment, too. GalleyCat has a whole list of places where you can share books and eBooks with our troops to celebrate Memorial Day.
