"Right now, Twitter is an incredible technological and cultural phenomenon," Amy Ephron, who created the show, told the Associated Press.
Ephron and other producers provided few details about the show, other than to say it would be an interactive, competitive format, putting Twitter users "on the trail of celebrities."
At least two celebrity Twitter users have already voiced their opposition to the idea. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore say they may stop "tweeting," if the Twitter show gets picked up. Kutcher, who has nearly two million Twitter followers, "tweeted" that he doesn't like "being sold out," and "it's all fun and games until somebody gets stalked."
