“Darling son just told me they just put all the Twilight Zones on Netflix! Why yes, I do marathons! Just not the 26K kind” was posted on Twitter on April 23, 2011. “I like to do marathons....of tv shows on Netflix” was posted on Twitter on December 22, 2012. “I do marathons, On Netflix” was posted on Twitter on December 6, 2013, when the “marathon” pun went viral.
