There was a cute moment on NCIS' episode tonight, with storyline commentary on internet pop-up ads, Twitter and print journalism. The latter was a great, but quick, moment (you've got to see it), but we're partial to Ziva's view of how Twitter is about painstakingly updating your life, down to the details of your socks:

McGee: "I think your morning internet routine needs a little bit of tweaking."

Ziva: "It's that thing! That thing where people tell complete strangers whether they started their day putting on both socks, and then both shoes, or one sock or one shoe, or the other sock or the other shoe."

McGee: "Tweaking, not Tweeting."
