The fourth season of the television comedy series Arrested Development is set to premiere on Netflix next weekend, May 26. This season serves as a revival to the series after it was canceled by Fox in 2006. For rabid Arrested Development fans like myself, May 26th will be like an early Christmas Day and the buildup this week like a prolonged Christmas Eve. From the chicken dance, to the banana stand, to the Bluth stair car ... hundreds of Arrested Development gags have embedded themselves into the memories of millions of people around the world. Even NPR got into the spirit on Saturday by creating an info graphic guide to the running gags from the show. Needless to say, there have been no shortage of Arrested Development tweets.

As an obsessive Twitter user (I'll admit to it being my favorite social media channel), every week I notice at least a handful of tweets that grab my attention for a variety of reasons. They might be funny or insightful or, on occasion, even smart. In honor of next weekend's season four debut, what follows are some of my favorite Arrested Development tweets, from major news outlets, ordinary tweeters and even the official Arrested Development account.

Tweets of the Week would be infinitely more interesting if I heard from you about what tweets you'd like to see featured and why. Send them to me on Twitter at @bobbbyg and I'll consider them for the next Tweets of the Week.

Here we go again ... tweet, tweet.

Today's themes are: Never-nudes, Army, and there's always money in the banana stand
