It might have taken a satirical drubbing in Charlie Brooker's end-of-year roundup, but the habit of tweeting along to the BBC's Question Time still holds many in thrall.
So much so that Hackney Picturehouse runs a monthly live screening of the political show, where tweeting is encouraged.
The next one is tomorrow night (12 January). Expect shouting, booing, texting, beer and 'Dimbledancing to the theme music'. Tickets are £5.
