Twitter Inspires New CBS Show

Twitter is everywhere these days, so it shouldn’t be surprising that the social networking site has even turned up as the inspiration for a new CBS sitcom.

A particular Twitter account created by a 29-year-old San Diego man, which we will euphemistically call “Stuff My Dad Says,” has garnered 700,000 followers since its launch in early August.

The account, as the name implies, highlights quips and jokes the account holder’s father says. Its creator, Justin Halpern, recently signed a book deal to make a printed version of his dad’s sayings, will co-write the series.

If the show does make it to CBS’s schedule, it’s a safe bet that the title won’t be the same as the Twitter account.

And that’s definitely a good thing.
