Why do you tweet? For the ca$h money, obv. I’ve managed to be the only person to monetize Twitter, which I do secretly, for millions of dollars. Seriously though, I love comedy and I’m extremely impatient. It kills me to write an episode of television and have to wait three months before it airs. Twitter is instant gratification and instant feedback.
When you’re not tweeting you’re: Online shopping. Looking up interesting fad diets. Watching YouTube clips of soldiers coming home and surprising their families and pets. Honestly, I do that.
