Internet Helps LeVar Burton Wrest Control Of Reading Rainbow Twitter Handle
via Huffington Post:
For years, some nefarious squatter has been sitting on the @ReadingRainbow Twitter handle. In a daring quest to regain his birthright, former Reading Rainbow host LeVar Burton sent a direct message to the account holder, asking for the rights to the name.
He received no response. So LeVar (a.k.a. @LeVarBurton) turned to the internet, and tweeted out the following message on Tuesday night:
Dear @twitter I'm trying to contact the individual who's sitting on @ReadingRainbow but he hasn't Tweeted in #3YEARS Can you help? Thanks!
Within hours, the rage of 20-somethings who grew up on the PBS children's show prevailed. The account was handed over to LeVar. America, today we did fly twice as high.
Hey, remember when LeVar was on Community? That was funny.
