The fun thing about watching the presidential press conference with Twitter in the background are the real time reactions of people sitting at home remarking on the event.

Like the teleprompter jokes that began as soon as the press conference started.

Or when President Obama flashed some anger at CNN correspondent Ed Henry for asking why it took him days to express outrage over the bonuses paid to executives at AIG.

"It took us a couple of days because I like to know what I'm talking about before I speak," Obama snapped.

The Twitterverse snapped too. "Ed Henry" soon became one of the most searched items and people quickly typed out what they thought of the exchange.

daveburkevt wrote, "Obama slams CNN dufus..."

EdJLucio typed, "Daaaamn CNN's Ed Henry got roasted!"

c3ane agreed saying, "CNN/Ed Henry you got spanked. Deal with it."
