Two major Hollywood studios have taken steps to try and censor the candid tweets of their stars. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a recent contract issued by Disney forbade confidentiality breaches via ‘interactive media such as Facebook, Twitter or any other interactive social network or personal blog’.
At DreamWorks, writers have been told not to jump the gun on studio press releases via ‘a social networking site, blog or other internet-type site’. An entertainment lawyer told THR: ‘This is just the beginning. Hollywood has a long history of controlling what talent says in the media. This is just a new area of media that hasn’t been controlled yet.’ Thx Amanda!
