Previous generations had to linger around artists alley tables to listen in on what their favorite creators were saying behind the scenes.
Today, we have Twitter, where they present everything from opinions between Cameron Stewart and Andy Diggle on trending motion comics to Punisher Photoshoppery gone bizarre thanks to Rick Remender and Chuck BB. (That's "FrankenQuesada" pictured here.)
Elsewhere, away from the hubbub, Chris Eliopoulos pondered where his trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom would fit in on his taxes next year, and Ben Templesmith tossed in his thoughts on Ted Kennedy. You can find it all below in the Twitter Report for August 27, 2009.

Motion Comics pt 1: @cameronmstewart "Motion Comics": Horrible idea or merely a bad one?
-Cameron Stewart, Writer/Artist ("Sea Guy," "Sin Titulo")
Motion Comics pt 2: @andydiggle @cameronmstewart I preferred motion comics when they were called "really cheap and crappy mid-70s cel animation."
-Andy Diggle, Writer ("The Losers," "Hellblazer")
Motion Comics pt 3: @ScottAllie @cameronmstewart There's a way to do something cool that falls into what people are calling motion comics. But mostly you're right.
-Scott Allie, Writer/Edit ("Hellboy," "Solomon Kane")
@eliopoulos I am at Disney's Animal Kingdom doing research for the new Pet Avengers book. Write-off!
-Chris Eliopoulos, Artist/Writer/Letterer ("Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers," "Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius")
@bremxjones Doctor Doom is the best of all the Doctors. He should cross-over with House.

Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@Templesmith So....Ted Kennedy is going to be buried before Michael Jackson. Is anyone else disturbed by this?
