The Tweet Beat

MTV's Jim Cantiello came up with a new online pilot that's like a Twitter version of Web Soup, called The Tweet Beat. The show's tagline is "we follow celebrity twitters so you don't have to."

Kris Allen and Anoop Desai's Wolfgang Twitpics are covered in this episode and honored as the Twitter All-Star of the week. Jim gets a little huffy about Kris cheating on him with Michael Slezak. LOL. Jim can at least take solace in the fact that Kris is following him on Twitter. He STILL hasn't added Slezak!

Also snarked on (with a smile) in this episode are Tyra Banks for her barrage of bacon tweets, Miley Cyrus with a little bit of a cringe-worthy comment about naming her kitten, Nicky Hilton for not knowing District 9 was an alien movie, and Holly Montag for saying she missed Nirvana (the snark being that with shows like The Hills, MTV's target demo got switched).

I hope this becomes a regular show. Jim's hilarious, celebs are fun to snark on, and you know he will find a way to sneak in a Kris mention as often as he can.
