Tweets Of The Week
@RobertKirkman I just don't know what to say, guys. RT @wwwbigbaldhead: http://pic.twitter.com/ehNV6w5N
Predictably, Olympic fever gripped Twitter again this week. Last night’s closing ceremony was a highlight for sci-fi fans, with the Pet Shop Boys arriving in the Olympic Stadium escorted by Silent Hill-esque Pyramid Heads and Eric Idle sporting camp Stormtrooper leisurewear throughout his (brilliant) routine.
But whereas the Olympics showcased Twitter’s glorious potential as the modern watercooler, the news that the Beeb has commissioned a new Doctor Who docu-drama to celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary was the perfect example of Twitter as a breaking news service. The strict character limits mean more traditional forms of media will always be necessary for analysis and explanation, but Twitter couldn’t be better for finding out information fast and first.
@Markgatiss “One day, I shall come back”. Thrilled to announce I’m writing a long-cherished drama about the creation of ‘Doctor Who’!
Needless to say, for all the latest sci-fi news first(ish) make sure you’re following @SFXmagazine and our chums @comicheroesmag

@SethGreen Interesting fact about Joss Whedon- sometimes to let off steam, he secretly records his hard core rap. http://say.ly/PdO3VHp

@RobertKirkman We wrapped on the mid-season finale of @WalkingDead_AMC a few hours ago. Amazing work from all involved, this Georgia crew kicks ass!
