- Check-Ins Not Dead: GetGlue Posts a Record Number of Check-Ins for April "That "virtual water cooler" effect is no doubt spurring on the check-ins and the conversations on GetGlue, something that goes beyond just the site itself. During primetime, for example, between 3% and 20% of tweets about TV shows come from GetGlue."
