Time put Twitter on the cover and dished out thousands of words of fluff about it. This Twitter love-fest is getting out of hand. Can the Time jinx be worse than the Sports Illustrated one?

Very funny and well worth watching. It's well done technically and whoever put this together obviously knows the business. My only criticism is that this very good nine minute video could have been a truly excellent five minute one with some tightening up and fewer choruses.
