Jim Lee & Geoff Johns’ DC Gigs, Shaun White’s Olympic Gold, And ‘StarCraft 2′ In Today’s Twitter Report

Jim Lee and Geoff Johns have no shortage of friends in comics, and they’re likely to get a lot more now that Lee has been named co-publisher of DC Comics along with Dan DiDio, and Johns holds the title of Chief Creative Officer. Congratulatory tweets flooded the feed this morning after the press release went out, but Johns had other priorities to worry about, such as preparing donuts.

Shaun White’s gold medal run in the snowboarding halfpipe event last night earned a lot of interest as well, even if Pia Guerra was more concerned with catching a picture of Stephen Colbert’s taping. There’s a link to her TwitPic post after the jump, where you can also find out who got into the “StarCraft 2″ beta and what Kalman Andrasofszky listens to while drawing Dazzler.
