Last night, "The Colbert Report" had a special surprise guest: Biz Stone, the co-founder of Twitter. It turns out that Colbert's tweet this year about the BP oil spill was the most re-tweeted of 2010. In order to celebrate the tweet, which read, "In honor of oil-soaked birds, 'tweets' are now 'gurgles,'" Stone awarded Colbert the first ever Golden Tweet award. Obviously, Colbert took this as one of the highest honors in the land and immediately compared himself to former President Eisenhower. It excited him so much, he had to exclaim "I won Twitter!"
