Twitter has some incredible benefits, as Jimmy Kimmel of "Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel," noted in a monologue earlier this week -- namely that fans can usually get directly in touch with their idols.
Alas, he pointed out, so can the haters. But that won't stop him from mining some comedy out of those negative tweets, so in honor of Twitter's 6th birthday, he assembled several famous Twitter users to read aloud some of the worst tweets that have ever fluttered into their lives.
Comedy gold ensues, of a somewhat foul-mouthed variety -- on both the part of the celebrity, and the "fan."
