Very funny video

A new Web 2.0 tool that is being touted as one of the possible futures of journalism is Twitter. It is a Web-based instant message tool that allows rapid-fire group story-telling/conversations.

I don't get it.

But the New York Times the other day featured a very funny mash-up video about Twitter that still has me rolling on the floor.

In the video it mentions a culprit by the name of Robert Scoble. Scoble is one of the top Tech bloggers in the world and a former student editor of mine from my West Valley College days.

The video features Adolf Hitler getting upset when he can't use Twitter to share his latest thoughts because Scoble has overloaded the servers again. Very funny.
