“Finally, a useful purpose for Twitter” – 24/7 Comedy
WHAT: From the twisted minds of your favorite Twitter personalities comes a new web-series inspired by their funniest tweets: the award-winning #nitTWITS. Compared to cutting-edge sketch comedy series FunnyorDie.com and SNL’s Digital Shorts, #nitTWITS features hilarious video interpretations from the snappy one-liners created by some of your favorite comedians on Twitter.
Twitter has become the world’s biggest writing room, with some of the best comedians testing out new material and creating perfect set-ups for sketch comedy bits. Recognizing the endless source of comedic material from both celebrated comics and ingenious up-and-comers, writers/co-creators Mark Mathias Sayre and Amber Tozer bring just the right amount of witty, wry humor and a talented, fresh-faced cast to bring new life to the humorous rants and ramblings that float through the Twittersphere. The #nitTWITS’ most popular episode, “Shit People Say on Facebook,” notched 1.4 million views.
