Tweets Of The Week

If you’re on Twitter you couldn’t have helped but notice the deluge of Eurovision (opens in new tab) and BAFTA (opens in new tab) 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! (opens in new tab) 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:

@ 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
