The Top Tweets of the Emmys Awards

There were moments on Emmys night when we found ourselves far more entertained by the Twitterverse than the show itself. Crazy things were happening! Charlie Sheen was tweeting photos of himself with Ashton Kutcher, Michael Bolton was trending and Conan O’Brien was making some really strange promises. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite tweets of the evening. Share your favorites in the comments below.
