Arrington vs Swisher: Media mogul SmackDown

For the lunchtime entertainment of tech media followers, TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington and AllThingsD co-founder Kara Swisher are ripping each other on Twitter.

At issue is Arrington’s assertion that Swisher attempted to buy TechCrunch when it was flailing under new owner AOL. Swisher denies there was any kind of deal-making, as initially reported by Pando Daily, but admitted that she’d jokingly chatted with people about such things.

It’s a little hard to follow, ping-ponging between their Twitter streams, so here’s a screengrab.

Maybe we should call this a Twissing match?
