007: Twitter Story

Toy Story 3 had one of the greatest marketing campaign in the history of films.  Much of that was because of the faithful tweeting of the director, Lee Unkrich.  He made fans feel like they were part of the filmmaking process many months before the movie was released.  It was his birthday last week, so this episode features a look back at his life--on Twitter.
