Twitter Helps with Captioning

Australian TV station NBN in Newcastle, New South Wales is letting viewers Tweet to directly to the station when there are captioning problems. The Twitter account is @nbntech. This is the first time an Australian station has tried dialoguing with its deaf listeners this way. The station is trying to make amends for failing to operate within captioning regulations by failing to caption the TV Week Logie Awards.
