The next chapter in the story of the Twitter and Viacom partnership is a five-day comedy festival co-presented with Comedy Central.
According to the New York Times, the Twitter comedy festival will be played out in tweets and Vines.
The festival, using the hashtag “ComedyFest,” will debut April 29. Over five days, comedians – both amateur and professional – will tweet jokes and post Vines. For example, comedian Steve Agee will host a “Vine Dining” party of six-second video stories.
