Ken Burns' Twitter: A History Of The First Five Years Of America's Greatest Social Network (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Funny or Die has created another instant classic by pairing Ken Burns' singular documentary style with the rich, 5-year history of Twitter. In honor of Twitter's wood anniversary, "Twitter: #ARETROSPECTIVE" recreates some of the most memorable 140-character quotes from the social networking platform's past.

It also features an in-depth interview with Dr. T. Wheaton, Professor of Tweetology, played by the formidable Ray Wise, who Twin Peaks fans will recognize as Laura Palmer's father (geek alert!).

We always love a good Ken Burns parody, and this one is pretty close to inspired.
