Ann Curry Gets Stuck in an Elevator, Tweets About It

I admit it, I love Twitter. I'm not a Facebook guy, but Twitter is great for so many things. Including minute by minute descriptions of what it's like to be trapped in the elevator of a large office building. 'Today's' Ann Curry and other journalists were trapped in an elevator at the New York Times building yesterday, and not only did they tweet about it, they made a video (and another one)!

There's something odd and funny about a bunch of people stuck in an elevator, frantically pecking away on their Blackberries.

Remember the scene in 'You've Got Mail' when Tom Hanks and Parker Posey are trapped in the elevator and the only way they can contact someone is via the phone in the elevator that goes to the maintenance department? Scenes like that would have to be written a whole different way in this age of video phones and Twitter.

ann curry is an industrial strength irritant and my only regret was that she was rescued from the elevator.

Meh, lame... Stephen Fry did the same thing back in February of 2009; back then it was at least original...

Sounds like they were living it up as they were going down.

No wait! They weren't going down. They were stuck. Never mind.
