This week's Twits are:


Keep them in mind as you watch the video, below:

I'm a bit puzzled here, as the depicted Twits (Neil Patrick Harris, David Lynch, and Pink) were not the ones shown (Moby, Nick Hogan, and John Mayer). Which ones are the true Twitters?

3 for 4. Would have had 100% if they came in a different order though. Missed the Moby one.

50%. Switched John Mayer and Moby.

I should have guessed John Mayer would know nothing about 1941 in the Phillipines to use it as a reference.

The new format is okay. It makes for a pleasant change, but the original format is better IMHO. I'd much rather appreciate the content knowing the celeb who said it instead of trying to guess. You also have more twits per video with the old format.

Nick Hogan was easy; he's too distinctive from the other contestants here. Moby vs. John was tough because they're both such pretentious wanks, and Kirstie was a good distractor for them both. Had the quotes been placed differently (i.e., Enquirer quote first or second) it would have been easier to weed her out of the mix.

The format is okay, but I also like the original format. Maybe some weeks the tweets (and production deadlines) will lend themselves naturally to one or the other?

Had you actually given viewers the correct Twitterers from which to choose, I probably would have been able to guess correctly.

What did I miss?

HELP? And why do some people seem to be seeing the right ones? They were great, but this is very confusing!

I got one right - Kirstie Alley's. I'm going to have to try harder next time.

Did anyone else get "[an error occurred while processing this directive]" when trying to get to today's chat?

The other seven chats on today worked fine, as did last week's Celebritology.

I got the error message in Firefox, Chrome, Safari and IE8.

Some of these celebs should have chaperones or some kind of handler by their side whenever they get near any media or electronic device and these handlers should be wearing a t-shirt or badge that says: "I'm with stupid". Perhaps Twitter should change it's logo to a clown[oh snap!]

Archived chat from earlier today is now visible...
