Tweets of the Week
It should come as no surprise that Breaking Bad‘s conclusion dominated much of the Twitterverse at the beginning of the week. The series finale had such a profound impact not only on TV audiences but also industry veterans like Lost producer Damon Lindelof, who penned an open letter to THR proclaiming that Breaking Bad’s utter perfection has caused him to call it quits on trying to defend his own Lost finale.
Kanye West spent another week atop Twitter’s worldwide trends with his BBC interview alongside Zane Lowe. West called out in typically boisterous fashion his disgust with the music industry, his plans for creating a “trillion dollar” empire and his awesome, out of the blue shout-out to Wreck-It Ralph.
Morrissey’s autobiography might finally have a release date in a couple weeks, though Moz fans across the world have started conditioning themselves to be completely numb to its recurring stream of delays. And speaking of controversial, Sinead O’Connor succumbed to Miley Cyrus’ calculated ‘shock and awe’ publicity campaign, to which Cyrus responded with characteristic glibness. Oh, and by the way, the government shutdown is still going strong. Apparently a week’s time simply isn’t long enough time for the chaotic situation to transcend its current status as quintessential Twitter fodder.
