When I was growing up, the only way to truly emerse yourself in your favorite TV shows and movies was to go to Universal Studios to take the tour. Now, it’s as simple as a fictional character posting on Twitter to make fans feel like part of the show. While SyFy is using S.A.R.A.H. (Self Actuated Residential Automated Habitat) to keep a fan base, you can use Twitter to find job postings and network your way to a new job.
