CNN already has established that it's crazy for Twitter. And in this recent report, Josh Levs asked stand-up comedians John Heffron (@johnheffron) and Craig Shoemaker (@thelovemaster) about how to be funny in 140 characters or less, and whether Twitter is a good way for comedians to build up a fan base.
Shoemaker is following nobody on Twitter, so he clearly still needs to learn a thing or two about Twitter. And really, Levs? We're going to see a future in which live comedy is delivered via Tweets? C'mon. We all want to make our friends and fans laugh in short bursts via Twitter, but that's never going to be equal to the visceral thrill both performers and audiences experience alike during a live stand-up show.
