Gwyneth Paltrow, Google+, And Brad Bird In Today's Twitter Report

Gwyneth PaltrowYesterday, our Twitter peeps were jabbering about the new "Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol" trailer, but a few people finally realized in the last 24 hours that the film's director, Brad Bird, is the same guy who did "The Incredibles." Dan Slott and Marc Bernardin chewed on those implications, while Mark Millar was just happy to see Gwyneth Paltrow show up scantily clad in Vanity Fair.

Other popular topics for the night included requests for Google+ invitations from creators eager to grab an early home on Google's new social network. The service turned out to be a welcome change for R. Stevens, thanks to one key attribute that sets it apart from Facebook. Find out what that is and where "Powers" and "Cowboys and Aliens" post-production are at after the jump.
