If you don't think hot topics on Facebook and Twitter are headlines, you haven't paid attention to the way the information world is heading :smile:

Anyway, in the wake of Eddie Murphy dropping out of hosting the Oscars, a lot of comments have been made about the Muppets hosting the show.

To join in the fun and games, check out https://www.facebook.com/MuppetOscars or @MuppetOscars

Yes but it would be great to have Statler and Waldorf heckling to everyone who wins an Oscar
A fun idea. It'll be a shame when we have to face the reality that the show is in February and there may not be enough time to develop much of a 'concept'.

If you're on Twitter, follow @MuppetOscars, and "like" the Facebook page - they went from a really small number of followers today to close to 14,000!

This just got a mention on NPR's Marketplace Morning Report. Everyone get on twitter and start tweeting.
