AMC CEO Credits 'Single Tweet' For 85% Occupancy At 'Avatar' Dec. 18 Screening — Elon Musk Says, 'Twitter Is…'

Elon Musk's Twitter might be going through a chaotic run, but the CEO of AMC Entertainment Holdings AMC says "a single tweet" is powerful. 

What Happened: On Wednesday, Adam Aron, AMC chairman and CEO, took to Twitter and expressed his take on the microblogging site's "powerful communication." 

He stated that just one tweet promotion for the 'Avatar: The Way Of Water' screening at AMC Disney Springs has resulted in 85% sold out seats, that too, in less than 24 hours. 

He claimed that 85% of the seats for the 'Avatar: The Way Of Water' screening at the AMC Disney Springs were sold out in less than 24 hours after a 'single tweet.'

Another example for @elonmusk that shows Twitter is such a powerful communications vehicle. A single tweet was the ONLY promotion of my Dec 18 movie screening of Avatar at AMC Disney Springs 24 in Orlando. It’s now 85% sold out, in less than 24 hours, three weeks in advance. Wow!

Musk replied graciously, saying Twitter is a platform where opinion leaders reside.
