Show Title Background

On Sunday, March 7th, during the live taping of this episode of TWiT, Leo Laporte "pranked" one Twitter account by sending all to a random account, @LisaTickledPink and following her. Within 20 minutes, she received more than 2,000 followers.

Kevin Rose chose the random Twitter account by searching for “i hate technology”. Afterward, Leo realized that she might have setup email alerts for every new follower and her email account was going to get bogged down with. He then promised the New Zealand resident a free iPad.

The “prank” was inspired by Conan O’Brien’s joke. Laporte also promised a random follower of Lisa a free iPad.
