What would "Seinfeld," the 1990s uber-cult classic TV series that spawned a million catchphrases and reshaped America's vision of soup kitchens forever, look like if it was still on the air?

A new Twitter account launched this week by Jack Moore, the sports editor for every procrastinator's favorite website buzzfeed.com, gives us a glimpse. In the handful of days since the account, @SeinfeldToday, was opened, it has managed to gain more than 140,000 followers.
Each one of Moore's tweets is a type of concentrated summary that could be the basis for an entire episode of the series. Earlier on Wednesday, he tweeted: "Kramer gives Ted talk full of nonsense words, gets a standing ovation. George discovers that there's a gay porn star named George Costanza."
Other 140-character dispatches include, "Elaine has a bad waiter at a nice restaurant, her negative Yelp review goes viral, she gets banned. Kramer accidentally joins the Tea Party;" and "Elaine thinks an @NYMag sex diary is about her. Jerry dumps his gf for being obsessed w/ Kate Middleton. Kramer spoils a TV show for George."
Tweeters have jumped on the virtual bandwagon and launched their own witty retorts thanks to "reply" and "retweet." The user @sprotster suggested: "Jerry & Elaine get lost on their way to Ikea. George gets addicted to GrubHub; gains 40 lbs. Cosmo discovers barefoot running."
One thing is for certain: If Moore turns his feed into a website called seinfeldtoday.com, there is no doubt he will be master of his own domain.
