Martha Stewart Dedicates Episode to Twitter

Martha Stewart has gone from queen of domesticity to white collar criminal to tech junkie, all in pretty quick succession. For a woman who spent the better part of her career amassing power and wealth through glorified arts and crafts tutorials, it's been quite a transformation, indeed. But she's still got some lessons to learn.

An upcoming episode of Martha's television show, which will air Friday, October 2nd, is almost entirely dedicated to the phenomenon of Twitter and live blogging. The micro-blogging service's co-founder, Biz Stone, was her guest, and M. Diddy encouraged her studio audience to break out their laptops and phones to tweet about the episode, using the hashtag #thetechshow. One problem: the show taped (and, of course, the tweeters tweeted) Tuesday, but home audiences won't get to see what the Twitterverse was going on about till several days later.
Switched tip: If you're going to live blog (or tweet) an event, make sure it's actually... you know... live.

We're looking forward to watching the episode, since Martha apparently grills Señor Stone about Twitter's recent valuation at a billion dollars. According to Maura Johnston, Martha seemed quite skeptical of the dollar value attached to the service. For the record, that places her on the same side as Switched when it comes to the great Twitter debate. [From: The Awl]
