Super News Takes You To The Twittersphere (and Back Down to Earth)

The new season of the animated Current series Super News begins on March 20th. But in advance, they have released this wonderful satire of Twitter, the microblogging platform that everyone seems to be joining nowadays.

Twitter-criticism seems to be in the air a bit right now. Some are asking if Twitter has jumped the shark (no comment from the fail whale yet on this maritime metaphor extension). The other breaking news seems to be that Twitter has made a couple wittle house ads: is it merely harmless self-promotion or the harbinger of monetization?

Meanwhile, @SXSWi, Twitter is still ubi@tous.


Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
