Current TV’s animated sketch comedy show, SuperNews!, is hitting the viral video charts with “Twouble with Twitter”, a humorous commentary on the growing obsession with Twitter. The video, added online at Current TV on March 19, has struck a nerve among Twitterers and non-Twitterers alike. Twitter is an online messaging service, accessible via mobile phones and the internet, carrying messages of 140 characters or less. The Inspiration Room has an official Twitter username, InspirationRoom, as well as Editor Duncan Macleod’s Twitter username, Postkiwi.
A young man struggles against the pressure to Twitter his life away but is carried into the Twittersphere by his addicted workmate. In the Twittersphere they meet up with the iconic Twitter bird and fellow friendless Twitterers, only to be eaten up by the whale, the symbol of a Twitter outage. The title is an illusion to the 1967 Star Trek episode, The Trouble with Tribbles. See the original online at Current TV.
