This ‘Real Life Twitter’ video from CollegeHumor’s own Dan Gurewitch proves that while Twitter is fun for online use, its updates don’t often translate offline.

Take, for example, Dan Gurewitch’s inane status updates. Online, they seem like the very sort of Twitter update many of us receive (or send out) several times a day. When bellowed in a public setting, however, they seem irrelevant and without merit. Is this ‘Real Life Twitter’ a reflection on our own online narcissism?
