INT. JERRY'S APARTMENT—DAY

ELAINE and JERRY are standing around JERRY'S kitchen counter. GEORGE is sitting on the couch typing on a laptop.

JERRY: Again with the Twitter?

GEORGE: What? I can't tweet?

ELAINE: No one said you can't tweet.

GEORGE: Jerry did. Jerry's got a problem with my tweeting.

JERRY: Please, tweet away. Tweet all you want. Tweet your heart out.

GEORGE: I will. I enjoy a good tweet.

ELAINE: Fine, but don't you think it's a bit much with the tweets?

GEORGE: Who are you? The queen of tweets? I think I tweet the perfect amount.

JERRY: You know, you've got to have something to tweet about in order to tweet.

GEORGE: I got plenty to tweet about, baby!

JERRY: No, no you don't. You see, you have the Twitter account and the laptop. But you don't have anything worthwhile to tweet about. No job, no girlfriend, no …

KRAMER enters, nearly knocking over JERRY as he stumbles into the living room.

KRAMER: Giddyup. (Notices George.) What's with Poindexter on the laptop?

ELAINE: He's tweeting again.

KRAMER: My God! You're tweeting all over the place!

GEORGE: I tweet just as often as the next guy. No one stops George Costanza from tweeting!

KRAMER: I ever tell you about my friend Bob Sacamano? Tweeted way too much. (Getting animated.) Tweeted like there was no tomorrow!

GEORGE: So?

KRAMER: (high-pitched) He's dead.

ELAINE: Death by Twitter?

KRAMER: You said it, sister.

JERRY: What's the deal with that 140-character limit, anyway? Like if it was 141, the Internet would break?

GEORGE: Ooh, that's good. Can I tweet that?

LAUGHTER. APPLAUSE. END SCENE.
