Twitter, Comedy Central Launching #ComedyFest
Twitter and Comedy Central are getting together to raise each other’s profile, and audience. The social media site and comedy cable channel are using the hashtag #ComedyFest to kick off their partnership today. It starts with a live stream of a panel discussion including legendary comedians, actors and directors Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks and comedy film director Judd Apatow. Apatow and Reiner will try to persuade the technically-averse Brooks to join Twitter.
