"BET Hip Hop Awards was a giant random mess. I've never seen an award show with as many random acts as this one," posted one Twitter user.
American horror film " Paranormal Activity" is a term being promoted on Twitter to advertise the release of the sequel, Paranormal Activity 2, which is due to start screening in the US on October 22.
