Marvel Comics Retreat, 'Mass Effect 2' And The Apple Tablet In Today's Twitter Report

TwitterBrian Michael Bendis wasn't the only one getting psyched up for a Marvel Comics retreat yesterday. Both Fred Van Lente and Jonathan Hickman mulled over the event on their own Twitter accounts -- and it looks like they've made theirs Marvel instead of President Obama's State of the Union Address.

The mysterious Apple tablet continued to trend as mightily as ever over the past 24 hours in the Twitterverse. Rob Liefeld wants one, Jon Rosenberg has a few demands and Ryan Stegman thinks he knows what Steve Jobs does when he's alone. All of those retweets and links appear after the jump with Greg Rucka pleased reaction to "Mass Effect 2" and a snapshot from Brett Ratner. Together, they form the Twitter Report for January 27, 2010.
