After the "Who is Paul McCartney" and "The Titanic was real?!" Tweets, it's time to check in with today's Twitterverse-meets-history moment with Dick Clark's death. And, yes, there are those who don't know about Clark, but to be fair, some aren't American and Clark was an American pop culture figure. And the young aren't as familiar with him, because he's only really been on TV lately as the New Year's Rockin' Eve host—and in limited segments. It's the Baby Boomers and Generation X-ers who remember him on American Bandstand or Pyramid or TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes (kids, that was like Punk'd), because he hasn't been on TV as regularly. Anyway, we bring you the various modes of Who Is Dick Clark tweets:
