Reports over the weekend suggest that Twitter is planning a TV series, news that has since been partly denied by Biz Stone, the micro-blogging service's boss.

Hollywood news source Variety reported that Twitter was to team up with Reveille productions (The Office, Ugly Betty) and Brillstein Entertainment Partners (The Sopranos) to develop an "unscripted series" based on the site.

The news suggested "the show would harness Twitter to put players on the trail of celebrities in an interactive, competitive format" and linked writer Amy Ephron to the project.

In an official blog post, Biz Stone answering the puzzler "is there an official Twitter show?" stated: "There is no official Twitter TV show - although if there were it would be fun to cast!"

He then went on, rather ambiguously: "Regarding the Reveille and Brillstein project reported today, we have a lightweight, non-exclusive, agreement with the producers which helps them move forward more freely".

Hinting even more at plans in the TV arena, Stone teases: "Indeed, there are a lot of interesting developments happening in the television space - MTV, G4, CNN, E! and various independent production companies are all leveraging Twitter for fun new projects".

We will keep you posted.
