Tweets Of The Week

If you’re on Twitter you couldn’t have helped but notice the deluge of Eurovision and BAFTA tweets flooding streams this weekend. Unfortunately, sci-fi shoulder pads and a brief appearance by Lordi aside, there was nothing particularly sci-fi about Eurovision. Neither were the BAFTAs sci-fi heavy this year, with only The Fades and Psychoville scooping awards.

Of course if it’s sci-fi you want make sure you’re following @ SFXmagazine , @ comicheroesmag and this handy list of SFX writers . Last weekend but one we were at Kapow! comic convention, reporting from the show floor.

Ah, who are we kidding waffling on about Eurovision and giving our own Twitter accounts a SHAMELESS PLUG. It’s been over a week since Dan Harmon left Greendale for good, and we’re still quite sad about it, so we’re dedicating this week’s extended Twitter round-up to our favourite show on TV that isn’t sci-fi:

@ alisonbrie I'm in creative debt to @danharmon who let us ride the coattails of his integrity, pushing boundaries %26 making f'ing awesome tv. Thanks Dan.

Heavy sigh... RT @WeLuvAlisonBrie : #sixseasonsandweloveyoudanharmon

@ joelmchale . @danharmon you are a true genius. You gave me the role of a lifetime %26 three of the best years of my life. Buying #Prototype2 today.

@ DamonLindelof Speaking of Community... I humbly propose a new hashtag: #FourSeasonsAndTwoMoreADecadeFromNowOnNetflixTHENaMovie

@ GillianJacobs I wholeheartedly agree with @joelmchale . I'm so grateful to @danharmon for my role, the show and everything else. Thank you, Dan. Thank you.

@ yvettenbrown . @danharmon So many thoughts. So little room. I guess, "I heart you" and "Thank you to INFINITY" will have to do for now. #Community #Love

@ dannypudi I'm in Amsterdam trying to avoid news. Thank you @danharmon for your imagination. You gave us Community and you gave me a beautiful gift.
