fflick was a website devoted to reviews, information, and news of films based on information collected on Twitter. fflick was launched in August 2010 by Kurt Wilms and three other former Digg employees.[1] It was acquired by Google in January 2011 and discontinued.[2]

Similar to how Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic aggregates movie reviews of new releases, fflick gathered tweets about a particular film in one place.[3] The site categorized tweets into positive or negative reactions.[4] It also allowed users to buy movie tickets, add certain films to their Netflix queues, and retweet other's tweets.[5] You can also check out what certain “influential” users of Twitter think of certain films — a distinction that's made by comparing the number of one's followers versus the number of people they follow.[6]
