LeVar Burton educates kids on proper Twitter etiquette

"It's time to read what's in my feed!"

There are so many ways a tweet can go wrong—as LeVar Burton is well aware—that it’s crucial we teach kids what the social media service is really for. I’m talking, of course, about parsing weird updates from celebrities while posting whatever pops into your head.

To that end, Burton appeared on a Jimmy Kimmel Live segment that tweaked his classic Reading Rainbow format for the 21st century: now it’s “Tweeting Rainbow,” an educational program that asks its young audience what Snoop Dogg is getting at when he tweets, “Put ya face in tha mayo.” (It’s what you do when you’re way too stoned, if you were wondering.)

Now we just need Ms. Frizzle to sign on for “The Magic Facebook” and we’re golden.

Jimmy Kimmel proves that people will buy anything with an Apple logo
If Jimmy Kimmel has taught us anything, it is that he can't be trusted, and people will say anything if you put a microphone and a camera in their face. Kimmel once again proved the latter point when he went out onto Hollywood Boulevard and asked people what they thought about Apple's new "iTime Smart Watch" a device that doesn't exist (and never will under that name).
