Comcast's first-ever Twitter promo campaign takes off, generates millions of video shares

Comcast's (NASDAQ: CMCSA) first-ever campaign to promote its X1 platform by leveraging Twitter influencers is apparently going well.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Paul's video has been viewed nearly 6 million times and has garnered 88,100 likes.
