Ann Curry Gets Stuck in an Elevator, Tweets About It

Ann Curry
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.

David Letterman is on Twitter?!?

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 9th 2009 10:26AM
LettermanDon't get too excited (says the guy who put an exclamation point and two question marks in the post title). I really can't see him sticking with it and posting tweets all the time (I'm sure it's just a temporary thing to give him something to joke about), but last night he tweeted while he was doing the show.

What's funny is that most of the tweets from the Late Show Twitter account are just basic "here's who's on the show tonight" type posts and links to show video, and then yesterday the tweets suddenly changed to shorter, more odd posts. Dave tweeted "Do you smell veal and peppers?" and "I'm making toast!" (Dave likes jokes about food and drink.) He also asked "I like Barbara. Do you?" in reference to last night's guest Barbara Walters (who is on Twitter herself).

What You Missed Last Night: Conan apologizes to Levi

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 6th 2009 3:29PM
Yesterday we posted video of William Shatner reading the tweets of Levi Johnston on The Tonight Show. Turns out Shatner read tweets from a fake Twitter account, and Johnston demanded an apology. He got one last night from Conan (well, sort of), but then we were treated to more Shatner. (Bonus: Conan mentions TMZ!)

Adam Glambert... I mean Adam Lambert's new CD is coming out

adam_lambert_for_your_entertainment_CDAdam Lambert's first album since American Idol is coming out on November 23, and the cover of For Your Entertainment is stunning. Kris Allen's CD cover will definitely not look like this. Believe me, it won't.

To some, it's already too much. Too touched up. Too over the top. Too glamorous. Too much Adam.

Puh-leeze! Give me a break. This is exactly an Adam Lambert album cover should be. It should be stylized and dramatic. It should take your breath away. It should push the envelope because that's what Adam did in his entire American Idol experience.

When faced with a chance to play it safe, Adam never did. You know the expression, "Go big or go home"? That was Adam Lambert on Idol. He may have come in second to Kris, but he made a bigger impression.

Introducing the Miley Cyrus Commemorative Tweet Plate Collection

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 19th 2009 1:02PM
If you didn't hear the tragic news that was announced last week, here it is: Miley Cyrus has quit Twitter.

But don't be too sad. In this video from Jimmy Kimmel Live, another celebrity introduces the Franklin Mint's Miley Cyrus Commemorative Tweet Plates, a series of collectible plates that have Miley's tweets engraved in them for posterity. The sad thing is that I'm sure that there are fans who would buy these if they really existed.
