Tweets Of The Week

One of the great things about Twitter is that, short of sitting everyone in the country in the same room, it’s the closest we can get to a mass communal experience watching Doctor Who . It’s a show that needs to be discussed, shared and felt with others, no episode more so than “The Angels Take Manhattan”, the trigger for Twitter’s first mass blub on Saturday evening:

@ RattyBurvil Best of luck cry babies.

@ KarenGillan2 and it begins....i am not holding it together!!!!!!!

@ themarcuswilson Another series done! Thank you to a fantastic cast and crew. A fitting farewell to Karen %26 Arthur - they'll be missed! Here comes Christmas!

@ jamesmoran Doctor Who just slayed me. So lovely, and sad, and I'm still not ready yet so may have to rewatch from s5 again. Slowly.

@ OldRoberts953 Shattered by #DoctorWho . Pulling bits of self together.

@ Paul_Cornell You two @RattyBurvil and @KarenGillan2 were absolutely wonderful, thank you for everything.

@ neilhimself @KarenGillan2 @RattyBurvil I loved writing words for both of you.

The SFX Twitter Stream

@ straczynski Richard Biggs. Andreas Katsulas. Jeff Conaway. Tim Choate. Michael O'Hare. Enough already. Go pick on somebody else's cast.

@ mrmarkmillar My first request on Day 1 at Fox: @TheRealStanLee cameos are no longer enough for us. We want Stan playing CYCLOPS %26 REED RICHARDS!!!

@ ZacharyLevi Happy 5th Anniversary Chucksters. Feels like only yesterday I was still workin on my 5 year plan and had hair like Greg Brady.

Wil Wheaton

@ wilw Thinking about what TNG means to me after 25 years really hits me right in the feels.

@ TeamCoco Has anyone given @MittRomney a "Voight-Kampff" test? Just askin'.

@ Josh_Friedman Tv pilots have as much 2 do w/ tv series as weddings do w/ marriages. However, u can pretty much tell if your friend's marrying an asshole.

@ SyfyUK @MollyEllaClarknow How much did it cost to produce #Continuum ? A: We spent just over $2 Million/episode

@ EllenPage Little known fact: I played the cat in the matrix

@ SethGreen Love you Robot-Stan!!! RT @TheRealStanLee is recovering from having a pacemaker put in. He's a cyborg now!

@ MarcW Ready for round 2.

There's lots of love for Looper and Captain Mal meets Number One as Tweets of the Week continues...

@ rcjohnso I know I keep saying "thank you guys for the kind words" but I'm really touched by them all, so fuck it - thank you guys for the kind words!

@ M_E_Winstead Completely overwhelmed and kinda emotional after LOOPER. If we get more movies like this, we are very, very lucky. @rcjohnso @hitRECordJoe

@ JRichardKelly LOOPER is fantastic. Saw it last night and can't wait to see it again. Great work by @rcjohnso and his DP Steve Yedlin.

@ rainnwilson . @HitRecordJoe Good thing Looper was awesome cause otherwise I would have called it 'Pooper'.

@ radiomaru Someone made an intelligent, thrilling science fiction movie for adults, and that someone is @rcjohnso with LOOPER!!!

@ ManMadeMoon For anyone out there who claims they love R rated sci-fi, but hasn't seen Dredd or Looper, do it. This is the good stuff.

@ SarcasticRover Soaking up cosmic radiation for almost 2 months and I don't have a single damn super-power. STAN LEE IS A LIAR! EXCELSIOR!

@ jamesmoran I believe that one day the music of Wyld Stallyns will bring about a new era of peace and prosperity.

@ JoshuaEGomez My new #Borderlands2 avatar outfit looks a bit like season 2 Morgan, no?

@ NathanFillion Whatevs.
