Twitter fight: Touré vs. Piers Morgan; update: Touré appears on Morgan’s show

Yesterday Robert Zimmerman defended his brother, George Zimmerman, on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. Novelist Touré watched the interview and offered up these reflections:

Replay of George Zimmerman's brother is on CNN. This should be fun.

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

This is absurd testimony.

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

Rob Zinmerman's bs is maddening.

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

Rob Zimmerman is trying to poison a future jury & spreading misinformation.

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

Robert Zimmerman: George wasn't patrolling the neighborhood. He was going to Target. What???

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

Piers did not challenge Robert Zimmerman the way a professional journalist should.

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

In response to that last tweet, Piers Morgan called Touré a tedious twerp:

Oh Toure, you're such a tedious little twerp RT @Toure Piers did not challenge Robert Zimmerman the way a professional journalist should.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

Here is a portion of the interview from last night:

Update: they are still going at it:

With respect @Toure – I don't think I'll take professional journalist lectures from a 'bull-dodging rodeo clown'.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

Great, game on. RT @Toure I could. RT @piersmorgan: Come on my show @Toure and give me a masterclass in 'professional journalism'.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

Mr 'Professional Journalist' @Toure in action: http://t.co/iQtv3h9E #BeekeepingClown

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

.@piersmorgan Shall we look at those clips of you bickering with Omarosa like a child on The Apprentice? No? Thought not.

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

ps @Toure – 71k tweets for just 57k followers? Ouch. Ever get the feeling you're doing a LOT of jabbering but nobody's listening?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

The point is @piersmorgan had a serious intv and he choked by letting Rob Zimmerman's obvious lies go unchecked.

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

Now Piers Morgan is challenging Touré to appear on his show tonight!

OK @Toure – we're on. Get to my CNN bureau in NY between 3-5pm ET and we will do this debate on air tonight. Deal?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

Come on @Toure – everyone's waiting. You man or mouse?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

Still waiting for an answer @Toure – you accused me of 'choking', so surely you won't choke my challenge today????

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

Well @Toure – you have about another 90ms to decide if you want to come on and debate with me tonight. Your call. #CNN

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 30, 2012

Update: Touré accepted Morgan’s challenge to appear on Morgan’s show. Naturally, the battle of tweets continued, with both sides claiming victory:

Piers thinks the world thinks he had a great interview. I can tell you that throughout the NBC building today he was a laughingstock.

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

Resorts to name calling cuz I killed him on his show. RT @lolaogunnaike: Why is @piersmorgan calling @toure a fatuous loudmouth? It's beef?

— Touré (@Toure) March 30, 2012

Like I said, poor old @Toure ….. now slink back to MSNBC mate, and leave real journalism to the professionals. #CNN

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 31, 2012

Seems like everyone has something to say about this:

Wow anybody else watching Piers Morgan and Tourés Trayvon conflict on CNN right now. They are going at it. Holy shit…..

— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) March 31, 2012

Oh. My. Now Piers is destroying @Toure. DESTROYING.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) March 31, 2012
