Tweetbreaker

090731_Angry_Twitter_BirdBecause once again, as has been its habit of late, Game of Thrones broke Twitter, which in turn broke the internet.

(No, not really. Come on.)

Axey back, haulin’ the usual Tuesday bag of GoTwitter Goodness. As you know, we grab the funniest, fiercest, angriest, happiest, weirdest (and yes, stupidest) Tweets, checking the #GameOfThrones, #Oathbreaker, #DemThrones, and #GoTs6 hashtags.

(PRO TIP: I check the #GoTs6 tag first. That’s where a lot of my regulars go.)

On with the mayhem!

If you want to do the Slideshow version, click here.

(Warning: A short chunk of a song from an embedded tweet autoplays when you open this. Do not be alarmed. It doesn’t last for too long.)

Next week: BOOK OF THE STRANGER! Sounds strange.

Y’all strange. Should be a good time.

    1. Danielle Bates wins this week for me with
      “That’s how you make a dick joke, Tyrion. TORMUND GIANTSBAE.”

      If we must suffer through many, many dick jokes, (and hardly any actual dicks) make all the jokes from Tormond – no more sausages on forks and flat eunuch jokes. I heart Tormund!

      Willy Wonka and TMNT references too, very appreciated.

      Book wankers that didn’t love ToJ are saddening, I’m an epic book wanker and it was glorious. Sword of the Morning doesn’t have any ranks in Survival… I guess Howland was a rogue/survivalist with sneek attack ?

    2. Ah, I love these twitter recaps!

      The creativity, the excitement, the fun! Thanks, Axey for compiling the thing!

    3. KG,

      It’s the music attached to just one of the tweets in the entire twitter recap- seems to bleed over to the whole thing? That’s weird, I’ve never seen that happen before.

      edit: I just checked and the music does stop after playing once. So it’s just that one tweet playing, sorry!

    4. Kinda not important, but I’ve been thinking about the Waif ever since Melly took her necklace off, and it’s already known that the faceless can take whatever face they want. I’m thinking the waif is much much older than the face she puts on. I’m thinking she puts on a young appearance to sort of make Arya more comfortable? I’m also thinking she is Ja’quen’s lover, hence the jealousy when Arya does well. Hmmmm…

    6. And those tweets that commenting about this:
      I don’t think the big Cersei bodyguard was ever called Robert Strong in the show

      You should be able to click on the Storify link in the top left hand of corner of the Storify portion, and that opens the actual Storify post, and from there you can go into Presentation (I believe) and select Slideshow.

      Or just copy this and stick it in your browser:

    8. JON IS ONLY ALLEGEDLY!

      I don’t think anyone cares about that distinction anymore at this point. It feels like the fandom is forcing R+L=J into canonicity just by sheer force of will.

    9. Seven hells, I can’t find a scrolling version that works. Normally I click on the storify link on top and I see the huge long post in one piece. This time it takes me to the weird slideshow thing where I only see one tweet at a time (pretty useless for reading).
      And unfortunately, even the long version embedded in the post above is cut off at the Tower of Joy tweets.

    10. “Did the Mountain just cause Pycell to fart?” Indeed and this was funny. Also all the pent up anger at Olly is finally out there for all get rid of, including me.

      What fun this is, I wish I could remember them and I don’t have time to re-read it today.

      Great job Axey!!!

    11. Oh I wished for a Woodes Rogers joke in there for Arthur Dayne !

      But you did mention his role on Black Sails so I’ll take that ! ^^

    12. Axey, all of the tweets are great and I love reading them.

      BUT your comments bridge the action so well and make me laugh even more.

      That little exposition on the attributes/levels of Arthur Dayne had me in hysterics.

      LOL nerd.

      Thanks for doing this every week and for making me spew my coffee all over my monitor. And keyboard. And desk…in a good way! 😉

    13. Love these – may not garner as many comments like a Pycelle fart article but these alone are worth the cost of the subscription.

      It got cut off for me, too, and then I reloaded the page. BEHOLD!

    15. Anyone ever consider doing a roundup of comments here? Best/craziest theories + dumbest arguments + funnies…or something? Just cuz it’s hard to grind through 500-1000 comments if you arrive late to a discussion.

      Why am I asking? I’m sure you have, but who is THAT unemployed?

      …waits for it… 0.o

      Hmm, not working for me. Though it always gets cut off at different places, I still haven’t gotten beyond the ToJ scene tweets.

    17. Sorry forgot to say this earlier: My fav comment was from Axey the master himself: “A lot of Daaaaaamn going on. As a nod to Sense8, I dub him Ser Arthur van Daaaaaaaaaaaamn.”
      BTW, I heard he was re-cast. That sucks. Oh well, a discussion for a different fandom.

      Finally made it work in Internet Explorer. Not too happy about having to use that, but at least I’ve finally read all the hilarity. 🙂
