Every Saturday and Sunday night, Twitter is exploding with real-time boos, back-pats and reactions to the show's performances. It's a reimagining of the old-media watercooler (&quot;Did you see The X Factor last night?&quot;) in live, online space (&quot; Omg jedward are through !&quot;) - and it could point the way to the future of TV . X-Factor's Twitter takeover is impressive. ITV.com's social media manager Ben Ayers , who has been leading the broadcaster's audience engagement strategy, gave paidContent:UK some stats from inside the show ; here they are together with our own analysis… • X-Factor occupied half of Twitter's top &quot;trending&quot; global topics list during Sunday's show. • Leading The X Factor keywords comprised at least 4.6% of all worldwide tweets during the controversial Jedward-vs-Lucie deadlock . • @TheXFactor has 51,000+ Twitter followers and a total 1.65 million Facebook fans. • 13,000-14,000 live comments come in via CoverItLive chat during a typical Sunday night.

But The X Factor's sustained outpouring of live social commentary is unprecedented.
The BBC has launched a Strictly Come Dancing application for the latest series. The new application enables users to get more involved with the show while watching it. Judge Len Goodman appears as an avatar to welcome users, who can submit their own ratings for the contestants as well as select their favourite moments while the show is on air for viewing afterwards.
As you can see here, the iPlayer mesh application is already installed on the phone. And of course, I can also view videos, rate and share them with my friends.
