Twitter Explained (To Mickey Rooney)




Actor Ben Stiller explains Twitter to Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney. (Red Hour Films / Via YouTube)



In the above video, comedian Ben Stiller explains Twitter to a befuddled Mickey Rooney. While this may not have the laugh-per-minutes you'd expect from Stiller, there's a refreshing lack of easy jokes and genuine bafflement from both stars about the social network's popularity.

Enjoy the late-Friday afternoon diversion.
