Ricky Gervais on Twitter: "Irony doesn't work on Twitter"

Tonight at 9, on “Piers Morgan Live,” who else is a better guest to take a seat "In The Chair" other than the creator of “Derek,” Ricky Gervais.

The comedian, Golden Globe winner and "The Office" creator, takes the time to talk business, award ceremonies and most importantly, his twitter following:

“We’re not into rational discussion,” he told Piers Morgan. “Everyone takes everything personally on Twitter. Twitter is like standing at a notice board in the town center and someone comes and puts up a sign ‘Guitar Lessons,’ and they go ‘I don’t want guitar lessons.’ You know, it wasn't to you.”

Then, referencing the “one or two idiots a day” that misconstrue his ironic tweets as serious comments, Gervais continued:

“I think the world is sort of losing its sense of humor, particularly in terms of irony over the last few years. But, Twitter never had it. Irony doesn’t work on Twitter.”

Follow Ricky Gervais and Piers Morgan on Twitter and check out new episodes of “Derek,” now streaming on Netflix, then tune in at 9pm for the full, hilarious interview.

    That frozen shoulder is likely to improve significantly if not fully resolve using acupuncture. I have treated this multiple times in my own practice in Ann Arbor, mi with great results.

    You want to talk about gun free. You can not get any more gun free than a navy shipyard and as you see there been a shooting. Like i said its not the guns. Any bad guy can get a gun. You have to end the problem. Family members, doctors.they need to say something. The ones that get told need to check it out. Gangs take the aid all gov help from there family. Islam nuts that kill us due to there faith we need to ship them out of the US.
