Mentioning any event other than the death of Osama Bin Laden today would grossly mischaracterize the state of the Twittersphere last night and this morning. Creators praised the Navy SEALs who reportedly executed the mission to bring him down in Pakistan, New Yorkers reflected on the attacks almost ten years ago, and Brian Michael Bendis related how he heard about the news in mid-flight.
That said, Neil Gaiman did share a provocative, barely SFW photo of David Mack. I have absolutely no clue what's going on in the scene, but Mack looks happy. Check it out down below to find out how glamorous the life of a comic book writer and artist can really be.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for May 2, 2011.
-Neil Gaiman, Writer ("Sandman," "Miracleman")
@chris_ryall I'd much rather see "Navy SEALs" trending tonight instead of "Jack Bauer." The real people behind this operation deserve all the praise.
-Chris Ryall, CCO (IDW)
@rstevens We have a picture at the White House and it looks like the hallway from The Shining.
-R. Stevens, Writer/Artist ("Diesel Sweeties," "LOLbots")
@BRIANMBENDIS when the pilot announced the news the reaction was a tepid smattering of applause. then some1 near me turned to their spouse and said: who?
-Brian Michael Bendis, Writer ("Ultimate Spider-Man," "New Avengers")
@pattonoswalt HOLD UP THE HEAD, BARACK. (And play Europe's "The Final Countdown")

@BrianReed I bet Superman comes crawling back to America now.
-Brian Reed, Writer ("Ms. Marvel," "Secret Invasion: Front Line")
@SteveNiles I hope the families of those killed on 911 and who have served and died in the military can find some peace and closure.
-Steve Niles, Writer ("30 Days of Night," "Criminal Macabre")
@IvanBrandon 10 years ago i remember walking uptown away from the smoke, avoiding times square for fear it was about to get hit.
