Church of Scientology Buys Promoted Tweets to Battle HBO’s ‘Going Clear’

Claims interest at 'an all-time high'

An HBO documentary that's critical of the Church of Scientology—Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief—had Twitter buzzing last night. The terms "Going Clear" and "Scientology" were both national trending topics during the two-hour program, which included interviews from former members who claimed the church was fraudulent and abusive.
