We can probably all agree we spent much more time on Twitter than we’d have hoped this week. For many Americans, it was the fastest (and often most frustrating) place to follow the awful news pouring from Boston and Texas; Many spent last Friday night watching live tweets as they happened.
But with all the bad that flooded Twitter, there was still some relief in the world of pop culture. Patton Oswalt basically had the best week ever, proving he’s not only one of the funniest comedians out there, but one of the most thoughtful. Oswalt’s pitch for Star Wars VII last week was a great one, but we also got some official, broad news on when we’d see new films and just how many would be released. It was also the week of Record Store Day, a time where we combed the list of exclusives and prepped for a very early rise on Saturday morning.
We also talked the new Daft Punk single, “Get Lucky,” a song with so many fake versions that many turned to CNN for confirmation. Read some of our favorite tweets of the week below.
