Look for other Twitter themed accounts to get their own television shows if this one happens to take off. Which it might, because some of the posts are actually quite funny.

Disney pulls the curtain back on DIY roller coaster experience.Disney pulls the curtain back on DIY roller coaster experience.

The new ride over at EPCOT called 'The Sum of all Thrills' lets users create their own roller coaster track digitally. You can then ride on your newly created track virtually. You'll probably want to pick up a fast pass for the line.
