Reaching the Fringe Circuit Audience on Twitter

Fringe performers: on Twitter, if you want to reach the producers, tweet to their Twitter address. But if you want to reach the AUDIENCE, tweet to the HASH TAG! For example, in my home town, the Fringe producers are @OttawaFringe on Twitter… but you reach the audience with the hash tag: #ottfringe. For example: Read this review of my awesome show (link to awesome review) coming to #ottfringe vs Help @OttawaFringe! My van’s broken down and I’ve lost your phone numbers and email addresses. Have you sussed the difference? (It’s not subtle.) Let’s keep it simple. Here’s a list of cities, hash tags, and producer addresses that I know about on the fringe circuit:
