The Best of Both Worlds: Twitter and Comedy

Seems that Twitter is a useful forum for comedians these days -- especially as a testing and proving ground for jokes that don't make it past the cutting room floor.

There was an interesting article in Sunday's NYTimes about the ways in which late-night comedy writers and even the head writer for The Onion, Seth Reiss, uses Twitter to keep the comic juices flowing. Seems the worlds of new media and comedy (and even political comedy to some extent) are coming together in an attempt to make us laugh.

Check the article out and find out who to follow.
