Neil Gaiman clears up those American Gods rumours, Eli Roth declares World War Z a "masterpiece" and can you identify the famous SF necklace? All in the latest Tweets Of The Week
There used to be a time, BC (Before Comments) when celebrities would air their dirty laundry in the pages of red tops and gossip mags. Not anymore. With a direct, instant response only a Twitter question away and every man and his blog (er, including this one) reporting newsworthy outbursts the simple act of letting your fingers do the talking has become more public than ever before. Take Ellen Page, who recently had this to say about Naughty Dog’s masterpiece The Last Of Us (which stars a character who bears more than a passing resemblance to a certain Juno actress) during a reddit AMA :

@martinoxon My son just said -- is unisex when two unicorns do their "stuff?"
@mrdrewpearce I feel like the reviewers who didn't like Iron Man 3 really missed a trick by not saying we'd "jumped the Stark".
@straczynski On Wednesday I turn in my first draft screenplay for a Shadowman movie based on the Valiant Comics character. Most excited.
