Google, Twitter, and Instagram might all be vying for social media domination, but at least no blood has been spilled. Yet. A clever spot entitled “A Game of Social Thrones,” imagines a geographic social media landscape that’s strikingly similar to the opening credits of HBO’s fantasy epic. The spot was produced for HootSuite, a platform that unites myriad social media networks–er, kingdoms– on one web-based dashboard. It was released just in time for the premier of Game of Thrones season four. And if that episode is any indication, it’s going to be a violent few months. Let’s hope the Zuckerbergs and Pages of the world aren’t unduly influenced by what they see on TV.
