UPDATE, July 13: Here’s a sample of last night’s livetweets of “The Bachelorette”:

@jennpozner: We begin as always: 6seasons of #Bachelorette +14seasons of #Bachelor: ALL 20 stars +most daters were white #RealityBitesBack

@jennpozner: Will #Bachelorette Ali end up with salsa-dancing Roberto Martinez? Answer’s in surname: in #Bachelorverse #MrRightMustBeWhite

@jennpozner: #Bachelor franchise IS bigoted;that’s what I meant RT @GeriJarvis Love some of yr thoughts but #MrRightMustBeWhite is bigoted. Roberto’s gr8

@jennpozner: @GeriJarvis I said earlier: of 6seasons of #Bachelorette +14seasons of #Bachelor: ALL 20 stars +most daters were white. #CastingBigotry

@jennpozner: Roberto’s dad grills #Bachelorette about giving up career if R. wants her2. She says they can team up both @ work &@ home #EgalitarianMoment

@jennpozner: Snarky tags re gender/race problems w/in #Bachelorette & #Bachelor are meant to expose–not reinforce–bias #TSA #TwitterServiceAnnouncement

@jennpozner: #MoreChrisHarrisonLies: “If u’d like 2b on the upcoming season..apply.” No need: ALL #Bachelorette stars were previously dumped on #Bachelor

@jennpozner: Some, but many=total unknowns. Message: women=extra desperate. RT @strawberrysgirl Aren’t Bachelors previously dumped on Bachelorette too?

@jennpozner: Only 3of14 #Bachelors previously dumped on #Bachelorette; rest=total unknowns. Yet 6of6 #Bachelorettes were dumpees. #PowerImbalanceFromJump

@jennpozner: Saves time when creepy factor is on surface: Kirk’s dad 2 #Bachelorette: “Would u like 2see my basement?” #TaxidermyIsTheNewRomance? #Run!

@jennpozner: @alirio 3of14 #Bachelors previously dumped on #Bachelorette; rest=unknowns. All 6of6 #Bachelorettes were dumpees. See http://amzn.to/dzo4R4

@jennpozner: Ha! RT @DamianTVGuideMg painful 2watch other guys &their families, knowing how much Ali wants Roberto 2throw a baby up in her #bachelorette

@jennpozner: “When Frank starts analyzing&questioning…things get iffy.”-Ali B/c cardinal rule in #Bachelorverse: #ThinkingAintSexy

@jennpozner: Re last tweet: #ThinkingAintSexy rule usually applies 2 women in reality TV universe. Tonight, a #Bachelorette dude faced it.

@jennpozner: One of best TV shows ever, bar none. You’ll ♥it. RT @kaysteiger confession: Just started watching Buffy 4 first time ever #latetotheparty

@jennpozner: #Bachelorette & #Bachelor structurally assures heartbreak: producers require stars 2lead daters on, even if they’d prefer 2b honest.

@jennpozner: #Truism RT @jenniferweiner When a guy describes dating you as a ’stressful ordeal,’ it doesn’t foreshadow a promising future. #bachelorette

@jennpozner: U r singing my song. See: http://amzn.to/dzo4R4 RT @luvwords it’s kind of what people get for trying 2 “find love” on a superficial tv show.

Quick hit: ever since completing Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV (available for pre-order now), I’ve been turning my critical analysis of reality TV into an interactive sport on Twitter.

So, join me as I livetweet ABC’s “The Bachelorette” tonight, 8-10pm EST. The more interesting the questions and comments I receive, the more fun the conversation will be. Come for the critical gender, race and class analysis of reality television — stay for the snarky hashtags.

Send your questions, comments, reactions and — especially — your wit to @jennpozner on Twitter, as I unravel reality TV’s most twisted and persistent fairy tale… in 140 characters at a time. Search for the #RealityBitesBack tag to follow some (though not all) of this conversation, and use that tag if you want others to be able to see your tweets.

To get a sense of the sort of thing you might expect, here’s a sample of some my livetweets from last week’s episode (not including conversations with other tweeters):

@jennpozner: 6seasons of #Bachelorette + 14seasons of #Bachelor: ALL 20 stars were white; so were most daters #RealityBitesBack

@jennpozner: Next: #Bachelorette “fairy tale date.” (”Well, Cinderella…get u ready 4the ball”) I cover this in #RealityBitesBack http://amzn.to/dzo4R4

@jennpozner: “I think I’m going 2b more of a worker.”-#Bachelorette Ali 2dude who divorced x-wife b/c she had a career. Dude: your ambition “tickles me.”

@jennpozner: Despite her supposed “ambition,” Ali quit her “dream job” and gave up her apartment to go on a TV-sponsored husband-hunt.

@jennpozner: “This is the most important thing I’m ever going 2do in my life.”-Ali, last week on #Bachelorette #LowestBarForLifeGoalEver? #StillDumb

@jennpozner: #Bachelorette producers failed 2score usual #FashionProductPlacement, b/c no princess ballgown 4 “fairy tale date.” #LowRentPrincess

@jennpozner: #ThingsThatWillNeverHappen: “Find out the whole truth, when #TheBachelorette returns.”-host Chris Harrison

@jennpozner: #Bachelorette dumps dude who divorced wife b/c she worked–clearly the reason why, yet editors omit Ali’s explanation.

@jennpozner: In contrast 2 #Bachelorette, when professional women are dumped on #TheBachelor, producers frame women’s ambition as reason 4lovelessness.

@jennpozner: #LIE: “Many people have found love on our show.”-#Bachelorette host. Truth: of 20 couples, 2wed, 17broke up (usually quickly)

@jennpozner: Chris Harrison, host of #Bachelorette & #Bachelor, is one of the smarmiest, most insincere people in all of television.

    The Zune concentrates on becoming a Transportable Press Player. Not a browser. Not a online game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your videos and music, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strong points are its web browsing and programs. Perhaps it is your best choice if those sound more compelling.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to
    no data backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
