Twitter goes to Television

May 31, 2009

Anyone remember Tiny Tim?  He was the first fad I remembered as a kid whose weird persona caught the nation’s fancy in the late sixties.  Twitter to me is the latest Tiny Tim or The Friendster or Netscape of 2009.  I’m not saying the functionality of Twitter won’t live on but really, the hype is momumentally silly.

“How’s this for a tweet: Twitter is coming to a television near you.

Reveille and Brillstein Entertainment Partners on Monday announced they have partnered with the social-networking and micro-blogging service to develop the first TV series that incorporates Twitter into the action of the show.

Created by novelist Amy Ephron, sister of Nora and Delia Ephron, the show will feature ordinary people competing while on the trail of celebrities.”
