Sesame Street has really gotten into the social media game in recent years: its Twitter is cute, relevant and totally in character; Elmo has his own iPhone app; and characters have even appeared as Google logos. Yeah, puppets are so hot right now.
And lest we forget — Sesame Street’s spiritual siblings, the Muppets (also created by Jim Henson), have been tearing up YouTube lately with their musical stylings; they’re even up for a Webby for their rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
The most recent addition to the puppet-meets-social-media canon is now here. I greatly enjoy the Cookie Monster’s spin (even if one search query contains a grammatical error).
