Once again Twitter gets some national visibility through traditional tubes. This video of Colbert and Stewart’s live coverage of the elections shows Colbert “twittering tweets” (found on Twitter blog). There is a latent debate going on about the mainstream status of Twitter these days. The purpose of using Twitter is not obvious for everybody, but the number of users keeps escalating, and business solutions are in the making.
Regarding Stewart & Colbert’s mention of Twitter, it activated an active fan base in the Twittersphere.
