It’s long past Time’s bedtimeMay 29, 2009
Peter Serafinowicz is a great user of Twitter–he’s currently assembling a YouTube Orchestra made up entirely of musicians he recruited on the site, and his tweets are silly and often hilarious–like this one “Went to the gym this morning. As I left, everyone said I was the best!”.
You realise that’s a gag, right? Course you do. Well, Time magazine didn’t! In fact, they think it’s one of the worst offenders in this piece on arrogant/obnoxious tweeting. They asked Peter for an response and he wrote an equally funny e-mail ‘explanation’, which they ALSO took at face value! Genius!
(Bonus: here’s how Peter tells it!)
