Channel 4 Twist Our Words

Channel 4 have released a brill new microsite called, ‘Twist Our Words’, and it’s utterly addictive…

The idea is simple. Think fridge magnet poetry. Some of Channel 4’s best loved faces including Jamie Oliver, Jon Snow, Gok Wan, Jimmy Carr, The Misfits, The Inbetweeners, Heston Blumenthal etc. have been filmed recording hundreds of different words to camera.

All of these words will be hosted online at On the site, you’ll be presented with an interface of words, from which they will be invited to create their own sentences – short, long, funny, weird – anything can be created as long as the words have been recorded by our talent.

Once viewers have chosen what they want to say, they click play and the sentence will be delivered by a range of favourite Channel 4 presenters. You’ll then be asked to your details and you’ll get an embed code for blogging or a link for use on social networks will then be sent through to the viewer.

The very best ‘Twists’ will be chosen by Channel 4 and aired in promotional airtime. The library of words will be added to over time as and when existing, and new talent become available.

Give it a go; it’s great fun. A total waste of your time of course, but fun! Here’s one I made…
