Comedian Steven Colbert tweets more than box scores for MLB

Major League Baseball is in for a Friday they will never forget.

After defeating the league Thursday night in their Break the Streak Challenge, political satirist and comedian Stephen Colbert won the keys to the official MLB Twitter account.

"When I take over MLB, I'll give fans what they want -- lots of concession stand sales figures," Colbert said on

Colbert will man the account through 11:59 p.m. Gird your loins and keep an eye on the Daily Dot for updates.
