90210 Day, Oil Rig Explosion, And ‘Machete’ Facts In Today’s Twitter Report

Your favorite TV show may not be fortunate to contain five or six digits that could one day become a date, but “Beverly Hills 90210″ celebrates its special day today, and while some have embraced this cosmic coincidence, others in the comics world are less impressed.

Meanwhile in the Gulf of Mexico, a new oil rig explosion prompted some panic in the feed. This anxiety was accompanied by varies reactions to Apple’s new socialized Ping addition to iTunes, Brian Michael Bendis’ testimony that he does not use a ghost writer, and Jimmy Palmiotti on the state of decompressed storytelling in comics.
