For 1,000 lucky recipients in New York and Los Angeles, the October 5, 2012 issue of Entertainment Weekly will feature a little surprise – a page with a small LCD screen print insert used to display live tweets, as well as videos, from CW Network’s Twitter account. CW Network is using the ploy as a marketing gimmick to promote their new television shows.  The device is enclosed in two thick, stiff sheets within the magazine’s pages.

The device is an Android powered device using a cellular radio to stream the tweets. The device was built in China and is power by a 3G radio.
