New York, NY – May 3, 2013 — For fans who’ve ever wondered what the agents of Warehouse 13 are really thinking during their weekly adventures to snag, bag and tag the world’s charmed Artifacts, Syfy is turning over its Twitter handle – @Syfy – to the characters from the show where they can interact with fans, answer questions and share some personal commentary about the mission at hand. Each Monday night during premiere broadcasts, fans joining the Live Tweet with a Warehouse 13 team member are privy to some character insights and bonus content.
The Live Tweet and even more bonus content may also be accessed via Syfy’s free Syfy App for iPad and Android tablets. Viewers can access the complete Syfy Sync experience by downloading the app for iPad at http://bit.ly/syfyipad and for Android at http://bit.ly/syfyandroid.
Pete Lattimer kicked off the new W13 character Live Tweets with the Monday, April 29th mid-season return of Warehouse 13 with 10 all-new episodes. The night delivered a series high in Twitter activity (18K exposures) with #Warehouse13 trending on Twitter boosted by Tweets from Pete from the @Syfy Twitter handle. This was Syfy’s third highest season premiere day ever in Twitter activity.
“We have the absolute BEST fans! They love the show as much as we do, so we wanted to give them something above and beyond the usual extras” says Warehouse 13 showrunner, Jack Kenny. “Now they can have fun with Pete practically one-on-one, and go behind the scenes like never before. And hopefully have some laughs with us!”
Pete will return again this week, Monday, May 6 at 10PM ET/PT, with additional characters to come in subsequent weeks. For some episodes fans may get to vote for the character with whom they’d most like to Tweet. The schedule will be updated weekly on Syfy’s official Warehouse 13 Facebook fan page and Syfy.com/Warehouse13.

The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock), Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly), Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) and Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him control the Warehouse itself.
