Netflix, armed with your detailed viewing habits isn’t afraid to throw some shade. A December 10th tweet sent by the official @Netflix account called out a select segment of their audience with very particular tastes. In fact, a taste for one film in particular.
To the 53 people who've watched A Christmas Prince every day for the past 18 days: Who hurt you?

The message hit so close to home, the tweet soon went viral, even drawing comments from a few “Christmas Prince” fans.

For those who are unfamiliar, Netflix’s description for “A Christmas Prince” reads as follows: “Christmas comes early for an aspiring young journalist when she’s sent abroad to get the scoop on a handsome prince who’s poised to be king.”
Some users were genuinely put off by the sharing of personal info on social media.
That's pretty creepy @netflix. Is it in your Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy that you will collect and analyze viewing habits so that you can mock people via social media? Asking for a friend. #fb

Just goes to show, audience engagement is in the eye of the beholder, or in this case obsessive holiday film streamer. LOL @netflixUS.
