Khal Elsebai, executive producer of "The Morning Blaze," began a segment Tuesday by claiming that actor Shia LaBeouf had restarted his HeWillNotDivide.us feed with a flag again. When Doc Thompson and the rest of the gang questioned where Elsebai got his info, it turned out that Elsebai was just completely unfamiliar with a very common feature of Twitter, the pinned tweet.

"Can you read the date on that?" producer Kris Cruz inquires, leading Elsebai to notice that the tweet he's reading is actually from last week, March 8.

"Then why did it show up on my feed right now?" Khal asked.

"That means that he pinned. You know there's a new tool on Twitter where you pin a tweet," Kris said. "Once you pin that tweet to the top of your Twitter, that is the first tweet everybody sees."

After educating Elsebai on how pinned tweets work, the gang has some fun at Khal's expense.
