Twitter is an amazing resource for finding out what is popular and trending through the world, but it's also an indispensable source of comedy gold with all the funny tweets passing through the social media network.

These funny tweets are the perfect source material for a comic strip, which is exactly what Boston-based cartoonist Mike Rosenthal did with his Twitter: The Comic blog started on Tumblr. The idea is simple, smart and very funny.

Simply put, Rosenthal scours Twitter for funny tweets and quotes. Once he finds one that makes the hilarity cut, he draws it up into an amusing four panel comic. It's pretty amazing how much hilarity can be squeezed out of four panels and 140 characters, isn't it? Stats for Tweet-Inspired Comic Blogs Trending: Older & Warm
