However, Olbermann finally relented and joined the Twitterverse, tapping out his very first tweet on 'Countdown With Keith Olbermann' (weekdays, 8PM ET on MSNBC) while actor/author John Hodgman provided encouragement.

When asked by Olbermann why he should tweet, Hodgman replied, "Well, I can only speak for myself. I enjoy Twitter because I am an egomaniac. And it amuses me. It's like being able to pass a note simultaneously to everyone in class."

Emboldened, Olbermann tweets the following: "I give up. I was wrong. Young and foolish. Now my twitter-cot belongs to the ages. Behold: I tweet."
