The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
After making hundreds of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first twenty weeks of 2011, team AudioAcrobat is showing no sign of slowing down when it comes to the conjunction of our weekly #FF tweets into this nifty WordPress.com weblog.
Last week’s feature focused on the twitter account representing this week’s Google I/O conference – Google I/O – and was so well received by our readers that we are physically unable to derail this high-speed WordPress-powered train carrying our weekly bounty of fun and factual tweets directly to our readers’ screens.
…Now to connect with Jon Stewart and The Best [exploited deleted] News Team Ever!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @TheDailyShow, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the fifty nine Twitter accounts @TheDailyShow is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of Comedy Central’s fake news program.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “Comedy Central’s fake news program” in the same sentence.

How did we get TDS down to 60 seconds? Juice fast and massive doses of diuretics. http://bit.ly/ijwlCf #DailyShow

More about The Daily Show with Jon Stewart:
The Daily Show is an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning program that takes a reality-based look at news, trends, pop culture, current events, politics, sports and entertainment with an alternative point of view. In each show, anchorman Jon Stewart and a team of correspondents, including Aasif Mandvi, Wyatt Cenac, John Oliver, Jason Jones and Samantha Bee, comment on the day’s stories, employing actual news footage, taped field pieces, in-studio guests and on-the-spot coverage of important news events.
Created by Lizz Winstead and Madeleine Smithberg in 1996, The Daily Show was hosted by Craig Kilborn until 1999, when Jon Stewart took over the anchor’s chair. Since then, The Daily Show has evolved into the sharpest, most incisive satire of politics and the media on television.
