A series of trailer and TV spots for Muppets Most Wanted spoofed movie trailers that use tweets as praise for the movie they are promoting with comments from "critics across the Internet." Disney's marketing team set up a number of Twitter accounts before the promos debuts which include Muppet-related content and the quotes in the ads.

The Jim Henson Company[]

In March 2009, the Jim Henson Company established an official Twitter presence. The company shares regular tweets featuring news, insider information, exclusive pictures, content and give-aways, and other unique updates. The feed was maintained by Allyson Smith, the company's Vice President of New Media. Additional feeds for the company's family entertainment, podcast, various stage shows and other projects have launched as well. The Henson Company ceased publishing to their various accounts on the platform in November 2022.[4]

Twitter feeds:


  • In a 2011 episode of Sesame Street, the Good Birds Club turns Big Bird away for having big feet. The lead says they should "tweet" about it and begin chirping.
  • In an interview for CNET, Kermit is asked about the usefulness of Twitter and Facebook, to which he replies, "it's so much easier to stay in touch with fans, friends, and especially family. When you have 2,342 brothers and sisters like I do, Facebook and Twitter save a lot of late night phone calls."[5]
  • At The Secret Policeman's Ball in 2012, Statler and Waldorf wondered why everyone was playing with their cell phones, to which John Oliver (referred to as Harry Potter by the two curmudgeons) answered "They're tweeting!" Waldorf replied "Yeah, eating those sidewalk hot dogs will do that to you." Oliver corrected them "No, they're tweeting, as in Twitter. They're sharing their opinion on any subject, no matter how negative and personally offensive that opinion might be." Statler and Waldorf's reaction: "Negative? Personally offensive? I think we found our calling!" and "Quick, to the twittering!"
  • In The Muppets episode "Swine Song", Pache says he wants people to Tweet to the show.
  • In The Muppets episode "A Tail of Two Piggies", Piggy starts a hashtag #Unveilthetail on Twitter. Also Fozzie plays a game called "Who Tweeted It?" with Animal.
  • In The Muppets episode "Little Green Lie", Scooter gets new followers after he Tweets about Kermit and Piggy getting back together.
