Storyline

A strangely prophetic episode commenting on the rise of social networking. Dear, old Mom is still up to her megalomaniacal plottings. This time, she's concocted a grand scheme to control consumers with a fancy new gadget: the EyePhone. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter... they're all present, accounted for and poked fun at as a story involving a "who can get the most followers" contest between Fry and Bender emerges. Written by Anonymous

The One With Twitter...
31 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's funny to see Season 5 be older and then Season 6 be brand new. Even though it's based in the future, this season still seems more current.

In this episode, a Twitter-like application is blowing up all over. Just like it was in real life. Bender and Fry make a bet to see who can get more followers. I wonder who really would? The application is one their new eyePhones, which, obviously, is a play on iPhones. It's actually a phone that goes into their eyes, though. But what they don't realize is that this is really an evil plan by Mom and her evil corporation. They want to unleash a new virus onto people's brains and they think this competition might be a great way to start their reign of terror. How rude?

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
