@NickCiarelli on Twitter's Uselessness and Its Effect on His Sense of Humor

Nick Ciarelli is a writer living in Los Angeles. He writes and performs at the UCB Theatre in LA, where he's a writer for the Maude team Nephew and co-creator of the currently running sketch show "Death Valley Tween Fest." Ciarelli is also a contributor to ClickHole, and together with Bradford Evans (formerly of Splitsider) he “found” the pilot script to Denis Leary’s upcoming FX show Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, which he swears "is real and not a thing we wrote ourselves." Recently, I asked Ciarelli to share three of his favorite tweets and he talked to me about Elvis Presley, Wario, and penne pasta.
