Comedian Louis C.K. Plainly Explains to Opie Radio Why He Got Rid of His Twitter Account

“It is everybody’s worst side”

On a recent episode of the Opie Radio show on SiriusXM, comedian Louis C.K. explained to host Opie Hughes, in very plain and logical terms why he no longer feels the need to communicate via Twitter.

Four and a half million people saw it.. Some of worst things I ever said that’s been heard and seen by the most people. It’s like the worst possible scenario. …Reading it depressed me and writing it depressed me. I hated it, it’s everybody’s worst side. …It’s too instant, too fast. I don’t think the speed helps dialogue.

Warner Brothers Releases the Official Trailer for 2016 ‘Batman v Superman’ Film After Premature Online Leak

After a “blurry, Portugese-subtitled version” of the trailer for the 2016 film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was leaked online, Warner Brothers decided to just go ahead and release the official version, promoting it with playful hashtags such as #NotBlurry #NotPirated and #OfficialTrailer. The trailer itself features a very somber Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) as he contemplates bringing himself out of retirement to battle his good friend Clark Kent (Henry Cavill).

‘TOMSKA VS OREO’, A Hilariously Twisted Anti-Commercial for Oreo Cookies by TomSka

According to prolific video blogger Thomas “TomSka” Ridgewell, Oreo asked him to produce a sponsored video for their Play With Oreo campaign. His response: “TOMSKA VS OREO,” a hilariously twisted video that begins with an Oreo magic trick and a peppy jingle and ends in murder and chaos. In his video description TomSka indicates that Oreo found the video “too violent.” As yet there’s no word from Oreo so TomSka’s tale cannot be corroborated. But the jingle

Oreos,
two best friends.
This Oreo friendship will never end.
Even when life gets tough,
We stick together like cookies and white stuff.
O! R! E! O!
O! R! E! O!
Friends together to the end,
friendship, Oreos, and friendly friends!
Oreos!

A bit of backstory: in 2014 TomSka created a sponsored video for Oreo as part of an ad campaign in which the cookie brand recruited notable British video bloggers to make online videos about Oreos. The campaign made the news when it was censured by the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority for not clearly identifying as advertising.
