Kurt Andersen, who invented "snark" in 1986, is now "microblogging" at Twitter, the official web service of imagined pithiness.

Andersen cofounded Spy with the amusing-looking Graydon Carter, where they invented making fun of celebrities and the media, and then they both sold out, except Kurt still has cred because he just writes a column for New York, he doesn't edit a glossy celebrity magazine.

Now Kurt has finally joined such luminaries of modern thought as Jim Cramer and Shaq (that is the best Twitter ever, btw) in the field of 140-character updates on politics, world news, and what you are watching on TV (Andersen is watching You Don't Mess With the Zohan).

Now it's only a matter of time before this media legend "@'s" you, future superstars of making fun of celebrities!
