Hollywood now plundering Twitter for ideas

@shitmydadsays is the Twitter account of Justin Halpern, a (formerly) unemployed 29 year-old living with his foulmouthed 74 year-old dad. From the Twitter handle, you can probably guess what Justin tweets: the expletive-laced sayings of his father. Soon, the 30-minute sitcom version of these 140-character sayings, titled "Sh*t My Dad Says," will be coming to CBS as a sitcom. This is the first time a Twitter account has been acquired for adaptation, although Fox did pick up @TFLN in September - but TFLN, better known as "Texts from Last Night," was a web site before it was a Twitter account. Video of the new show (which stars none other than William Shatner as the titular dad) after the jump:

Anyone looking forward to watching this?

Pretty sure this CNN guy has no idea what he's talking about. "The Social Network" is about the founding of Facebook, but JT plays Napster founder Sean Parker (not Zuckerberg). These dotcom founders are all alike!
