If ever two words didn’t go together, they would be “twitter” and “war”; yet at this very moment the world’s first twitter war is raging between former The State, Ed, and Stella actor-comedian, Michael Ian Black, and beloved star of Roots, Star Trek: the Next Generation, and Reading Rainbow, LeVar Burton. On Black’s eponymous website, he claims his fans have “united in one purpose: to equal or surpass LeVar Burton’s legions of Tweeter followers. The initial numbers are looking good.” He says that “in the three days since launching LeWar, my follower numbers have increased 3,000%. His? Less than 10%. Even so, he still has me outmanned over 10 to 1.” Isn’t collecting the most strangers for no reason other than collecting them already so five minutes ago, even over at MySpace? We find Twitter superfluous, but we hear the kids really like it.
