When I started writing this blog, I asked readers to email me topics. I said nothing off limits, nothing taboo. Well the first person to suggest a topic was none other than The Cardstar himself, Lee Asher.
Lee posed an interesting question; is it socially acceptable to tweet DURING a performance? My first reaction was a resounding ‘NO!’ It is disruptive and distracting to both the audience and performer. He then altered the parameters; If it could be done in a non-disruptive fashion, would you be okay with it? Would you be okay with someone tweeting during your show?
Now personally, I don’t care. In fact, I would encourage it. If you feel my show is worth talking about, I take that as a compliment.
I can also see how some would feel it just isn’t right, that it is like talking during a show. That it is somehow spoils the show.
What do you think? Is it okay to tweet during a show?

While you’re at it, add Asher to the list for suggesting such an interesting subject. @LeeAsherMagic
