Twitter was ground zero on the Internet yesterday for reactions to the Apple iPad, which has dominated tweets in my feed for most of the last few days. It was also home to Brian Michael Bendis' first reaction to Zac Efron joining the film adaptation of his graphic novel "Fire."
Elsewhere in comics, Tony Lee posted from the front lines of his latest "Doctor Who" story with a hint about who's going to show up. Jill Thompson, who was become one of my favorite sources for Twitter-posted artwork, showed of a "Sandman" piece she did as a "warm up," and Neil Gaiman shared a pic of he looks like in his winter gear. Check out that retweet mixtape after the jump.
It's all rounded up in the Twitter Report for January 28, 2010.

@achewood Steve Jobs needs a Tim Gunn intervention. Mock turtlenecks tucked into belt-less jeans? White sneakers? The blood boils. #stevencallthatman
