Twitter LogoYou know Twitter is reaching critical mass when even The Tonight Show is poking fun at it.

In his second night as host of The Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien featured a sketch called “Twitter Tracker” which purported to keep you up to date on all of the hottest Tweets from the celebrities using Twitter.  All of the Tweets were of course fake, but it was still amusing to watch.  You can see the video below, and some more commentary after it.  (Sorry, video appears to be USA only)

What seems a bit off about this is that The Tonight Show demographic famously skews to an older crowd.  While true that Conan O’Brien fans are sure to have followed him from his old show, it still seems a bit risky of a joke to make for an audience that wouldn’t understand it.  However, when Mr. O’Brien asks his audience who uses Twitter, it sure sounded like the majority of them responded in the positive.  Is Twitter truly becoming this mainstream?

Only time will be able to appropriately answer that question, but it sure looks like this service is going to be around for quite a while at this point.
