During the on-the-fly broadcast about the oil spill, Charlie tells her to "get on your Twitter account" and tell the world that the entire thing was happening without a script and required great trust and cooperation between the anchor and the executive producer, to which she offers a cheeky reply that she only has 140 characters.
