Tweets Of The Week
@RealNichelle Taken 2/29/12 in the Oval Office - Live Long & Prosper! http://twitpic.com/95b6ki
It’s amazing how quickly things move online. Tweets Of The Week takes a seven-day break from API calls and failwhales, and there’s enough sci-fi goodness to fill three whole pages.
One piece of sci-fi goodness proved particularly momentous by confirming Twitter’s power in modern movie marketing. Simon Pegg’s new film A Fantastic Fear Of Everything had it’s new trailer debut last week, but not on Apple Trailers or Yahoo, as you might expect. Pegg introduced it to the world through his Twitter account. “Madness!” you might hear some distant movie PR screaming, but when your star has more followers than you do pounds in the budget (almost) it kind of makes sense.
@simonpegg http://twitvid.com/FWK8Z – As promised, a Twitter exclusive. Coming soon, from @CrispianMills, I give you A Fantastic Fear of Everything…
Special mention also to Arthur Darvill this week, who posted this pair of somewhat disturbing portraits – Arthur by Karen and Karen by Arthur (can you guess which is which). We expect both to appear in our nightmares any day now.

@NathanFillion I can’t believe @alan_tudyk did an April Fool joke about Firefly coming back. Dude. Too soon.
