Kanye West Roger Ebert Tweet of the Week

By Chuck Sudo in Miscellaneous on Oct 13, 2010 4:00PM


Roger Ebert's become a prolific user of Twitter, sharing information and links to interesting news and movie links with his followers at a pace that makes one wonder if it's Ebert himself tweeting, or a tweetbot. While we would love to see him employ his stellar conversational skills and, for once, actually engage people over twitter, gems like this will have to suffice.

This Ebert tweet was a riff on Phil Rosenthal's post yesterday about a sexually suggestive and vulgar memo sent out to Tribune Co. employees from chief innovation officer Lee Abrams, nearly a week after the New York Times expose on the noxious corporate culture at Tribune Co. under Sam Zell and Randy Michaels (the normally tone deaf Abrams has since apologized for the email).

Ebert's little joke is both funny and makes for ripe commentary.
