Attention Hollywood — Stop Making Shows About Twitter

Written by , Posted in General

Sure twitter is interesting when it’s three in the morning and I’m suffering from insomnia.  But when I exit cube-dom at the end of the day and turn on my television, I can’t think of anything I’d like to do less than watch a show about Twitter.  The new concept is called Shh, Don’t Tell Steve, and it’s based on the somewhat entertaining tweets of a man about the ridiculous happenings of his roommate. Can’t the Hollywood creanderthals think of anything more interesting?  I realize that a person’s twitter page might be interesting, but then scoop up the tweeter as a writer, instead of actually making a show about the tweets itself.  What’s the next step?  A show about what it’s like to be a Starbucks barista, inspired by a creanderthal’s morning coffee run?  Oh that’s right — they don’t get their own coffee.
