Stephen Colbert on the New York Times, the Twitter Ban and the Fail Whales

I’ll be upfront here: This is good, but it isn’t the best work from “The Colbert Report.” Still, it is about Twitter, so some of you will want to see it.

Colbert starts out by talking about the New York Times’ (NYT) ban-that-really-isn’t-a-ban on the word “tweet.” Obligatory red-meat line: “Twitter hasn’t banned the word ‘newspaper,’ and those have already faded into oblivion.”

Then there’s some fail whale stuff, too.
