LeVar Burton Assumes Control of Reading Rainbow Twitter Feed

Reading Rainbow host LeVar Burton assumed control over the Reading Rainbow Twitter feed last night, preparing for the launch of an upcoming Reading Rainbow App.

Here’s more from the release: “The Twitter handle @ReadingRainbow was taken and held by someone not using it and not connected with the show. Yesterday evening, Burton tweeted to the account in hopes of obtaining the famous Twitter handle to promote a new Reading Rainbow App he is developing with his company RRKIDZ. He tweeted just after 7 PM PST last night, and less than 2 hours later had the account in his hands! It just goes to show the power of Reading Rainbow and LeVar Burton!”
