Twitter for iPad : BREAKING: no one is "worth" a billion dollars in fact the very idea that people are "worth" a specific monetary sum is a lie made up by slavers and capitalists have a great evening everyone

Twitter for iPad : Internet is bad so it's taking a minute for this video to upload, but Chicago Police just rushed the parking lot and started hitting people. I have my press badge on and identified myself as a reporter but I got shoved to the ground by two cops who smacked my phone out of my hand

Twitter for iPad : this is happening right now. See the whole thread. At 0:14 an officer appears to push a man backwards with a baton who has his hands up.

Nothing good can come of this. You can tell the police are heated. Praying for everyone to make it home safely. One man is already dead.…

Twitter for iPad : I'm short, I think the work Saladin Ahmed Eric Nguyen and rico. have being doing on Quicksilver is nothing short of superb, and the way the examined his history, his rage, and his love for his sister in issue 3 was incredible. Shaping up to be a top 5 book of the year

Twitter for iPad : Saladin Ahmed just picked up quicksilver 1-3. Such a great story of a character I’ve never been overly interested in. Thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated! I feel a deeper appreciation of my own sister. Thank you!

iPhone : Scarce on Twitter because I’m on vacation but I have two new comics out today — QUICKSILVER: NO SURRENDER #3 and EXILES #5. Please buy them if you have any decency whatsoever. Hell, buy them even if you don’t.

iPhone : Just read the short story Rules of the Game from by Saladin Ahmed and now I’m mad at myself for initially skipping this book. His story reads almost like a PKD novella set in the Star Wars universe. Easily one of the best snippets of SW fiction I’ve read in a while.
