The Daily Show's Jon Stewart Takes on Twitter

In a segment called "Old Man Stewart Shakes His Fist At [Twitter]" Jon explored the world of tweeting last night with help from Samantha Bee, who is not only on Twitter, but Grunter and Stalker as well.


Stewart raised concerns that this trend further frays our already small attention spans, and admitted that he "has no f**king idea how Twitter works or why it is." But Bee assured him "it's awesome."

She went on to explain that it offers insight into our most important news makers' least important thoughts and that young people love it according to old people.
