For celebs (and even pizza companies) 'The Sound of Music' is a live-tweet event

Today

Now we know how celebrities spent their Thursday night: Watching NBC's "The Sound of Music Live!" and telling the whole world about it on Twitter. And they weren't alone — DiGiorno Pizza served up slices of hilarity by live-tweeting the event with over a dozen posts.

Mia Farrow was also tweeting frequently as the show progressed, with bon mots like:
