Twitter pushes the TV buttons

I don't know about you, but I'm a great fan of Twitter. Now that the service has announced plans to be delivered via digital TV, I think it will soon outpace Facebook as the social network de nos jours. I'm not clear exactly how the new service will work, having heard about it in a fragment of a leaked report last night. However, being able to use your remote control to bring up a keyboard on your TV screen is hardly rocket science.

The prospect of being able to tweet about complex plots like "Damages", and have an on-screen discussion with your followers is very enticing. Apparently there are even plans to interact with characters in live "Tweetdramas". I can't wait for the announcement at noon today.
