Angel @AngelMetalWings:
Something is wrong. The miracles I know I have within me will not show themselves.

Angel @AngelMetalWings:
This is not right. And I cannot just sit and let this happen.

Broo @_Broodling_:
Friend @GenesisHero, waiting for class to start is the most agonizing time of day, isn’t it?

Genesis @GenesisHero:
.@_Broodling_, I don’t think I’d agree with that, but I guess I get where you’re coming from.

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
I know exactly where you come from, @_Broodling_, but I do not understand you at all.

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
Oh, look at the time, am I really an hour late?

Idie @idie_okonkwo:
You are actually five minutes early, @QQuire.

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
WHAT?!?!?!?!! I specifically came late. Is there something wrong with my phone?

Broo @_Broodling_:
I believe @HenryMcCoyPhD rigged the satellite output to set your clock ahead.

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
FASCIST SCHOOL! MESSING WITH MY CELLULAR SIGNALS! I’ll show them a thing or two.

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
Bah, this is nothing compared to the fascism my father and I once quelled on the Bagdovan moon of Grodx

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
If there was anywhere cool to skip class to I’d suggest—Wait a second—

Broo @_Broodling_:
Wait, friend @QQuire, class will start soon. He must be confused. I’ll get him.

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
.@_Broodling_, go away and die, alien pogue.

Doctor Henry McCoy @HenryMcCoyPhD:
“@_Broodling_:I believe @HenryMcCoyPhD rigged the satellite output to set your clock ahead.” I amaze even myself! Better get back to flying

Idie @idie_okonkwo:
I can’t let @QQuire make @_Broodling_ late for class. Come, @GenesisHero, help me.

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
The heir to throne of the Shi’Ar Empire will not be the only student standing here waiting for class to begin!

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
Especially THIS class. I refuse to fight without fighting!!!

Broo @_Broodling_:Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Hello students! Welcome to our fifth Jean Grey School Classroom Tweet. And it’s a GOOD one.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Twitterers at home, please take your seats and pay attention.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
For the first time JGS Class Tweeting history, our illustrious Headmaster/X-Man/Avenger/AlphaFlight-ee/NewFantasticFourian is participating.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Yes, Headmaster Logan is going to be tweeting for the first time, teaching the student body (and you students abroad) live on Twitter.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Granted, he’s refused to have his own Twitter account, but he will be manning the official school account. This one!

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
So, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, heeeeeeeeeere’s WOLVIE!

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Alright, alright. Enough pomp and circumstance. We opened this school for classes, not to gossip like churchladies.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Let’s get started.

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
HEY! @JEANGREYSCHOOL! You can’t just start like that. You have to say what the class is and introduce it.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
.@JGSHEADMISTRESS, are you kidding me? Fine. This is Fighting Without Fighting. Open to chapter 6 and we’ll get started.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Class?

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Aw, you’ve got to be kiddin me. Where the hell are those little–

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
OKAY! This is Headmistress Pryde commandeering the official school account and avoiding surly Canadian swear words.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
All students better report to class IMMEDIATELY.

Idie @idie_okonkwo:
Are we allowed to be on this ship alone? I thought we needed professor supervision…

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
You call this a ship? Back on Chandilar, I used sturdier vessels than this for target practice! WHEN I WAS 5!

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
Let’s hope I do not sneeze and kill us all.

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
Looks like our cover’s blown. PUNCH IT, DOPEY!

Genesis @GenesisHero:
OW!!!

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
I was talking to the delusional amnesiac, @KidGladiator1.

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
I APOLOGIZE FOR NOTHING!

Wait, fellow students–class is starting. We must get back.

Genesis @GenesisHero:
Too late for that, @_Broodling_, we just passed the moon! How about THAT!?

Broo @_Broodling_:
I hope the faculty lets me write essays to make up for this rule violation. I have several prepared but would be happy to write more.

Idie @idie_okonkwo:
The Earth looks so beautiful from this distance. It almost makes one forget one’s monsterdom.

Genesis @GenesisHero:
You aren’t a monster, @Idie_Okonkwo. @KidGladiator1 might be, but not you.

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
I was an amazing monster when I was half-Brood. By all the gods, THOSE WERE THE DAYS.

Genesis @GenesisHero:
.@KidGladiator1, wasn’t that just one day?

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
Fine, @GenesisHero, THOSE WERE THE DAY!

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
This is too slooooooooow. Hit that red button, blondie.

Angel @AngelMetalWings:
Whatever gets us to salvation faster.

Genesis @GenesisHero:
WHOOOOOOOOAAAAAAHHHHH!

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
HOW WERE THEY ABLE TO TAKE A SCHOOL SPACE-JET?

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby:
I don’t think @HenryMcCoyPhD changed Warren’s X-Man security access. Oops?

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
And where is that furball when we need him?

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby:
WHOA, WATCH THAT POTTY MOUTH, LOGAN. Alright, we’ll take the other jet.

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby:
Jeez.

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
Okay, we’re here. Slow it down. Everybody be cool.

Broo @_Broodling_:
My goodness, what kind of star is THAT? The color of the light emitted it incredible.

Quentin Quire @QQuire:
That’s not a star, sleazoid, that’s the neon of Planet Sin.

Genesis @GenesisHero:
So this is basically an intergalactic riverboat Casino? Cool. Uncle Cluster won’t believe this!

Angel @AngelMetalWings:
If this is the place, @QQuire, let us stop talking and get going.

Quentin Quire @QQuire:

Whoa there, All-Business-Angel, let’s at least have a little fun while we’re breaking every rule.

Idie @idie_okonkwo:
Is there anything here that ISN’T sinful?

Broo @_Broodling_:
“@_Broodling_: My goodness, what kind of star is THAT? The color of the light emitted it incredible.” Cursed fingers. I meant “is” not “it”

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
What does “sin” mean? We do not have this word in the Shi’ar language. Just tell me, is it something that I can repeatedly punch?

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby:
Where the heck could they have gone?

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
Give me a second, @IceIceBobby, and I can track their ship.

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby:
If this leads to more Brood, I quit. And I mean it this time. For actual reals.

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
Wait a second, what is Planet Sin?

Broo @_Broodling_:
If I may be so bold, @AngelMetalWings, what are we looking for?

Angel @AngelMetalWings:

Some magical device that might heal Headmaster Logan’s legs. I overheard @HenryMcCoyPhd mention it.

Broo @_Broodling_:

A matter transmuter? I have always wanted to use one!

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
Why are you fools busy babbling when there are so many people and things here worth punching?

Anole @_Anole_:
Where is everybody?

Rockslide @SANTORULES:
.@_anole_ I’m not sure, bro…this place seems DEAD. Wanna TP the girls’ dorms?

Rockslide @SANTORULES:
Uh…I probably should have direct messaged that.

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
Is that smoke coming from that planet casino thing? That’s smoke coming from that planet casino thing.

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby:
You know, a lot of this teaching has made me think I need to apologize to Prof X.

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby:
But after this whole thing today? He was lucky he didn’t have THESE students.

Idie @idie_okonkwo:

Has anyone seen @QQuire? I haven’t seen him since I froze that shark alien who was after him.

Genesis @GenesisHero:

I think I saw him winning that strange gelatin game over there.

Broo @_Broodling_:
LOOK AT THIS! A MATTER TRANSMUTER!

Bobby Drake @IceIceBobby:

Hold your horses, Logan. We need to get your ramp down.

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
There you all are. Thank God you’re alive. YOU ARE IN SUCH TROUBLE!

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
I think it’s pretty clear that you all get an F for today for Fighting Without Fighting.

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
Except for you students joining us…

Kitty Pryde @JGSHeadmistress:
Holy cow, we’re still in the middle of a Live Tweet!

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Hello again, JGSFHL twitter followers! @JGSHeadmistress here still, thanking you for bearing with us through all this!

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Oh, and this was supposed to be Headmaster Logan’s debut! Of course, it would be the one time everything goes wrong…

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
I will turn the reins back over to Logan who…I’m sorry, what?

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
No, Logan, I am NOT going to type that, we’re an educational facility, we shouldn’t be saying that sort of thing.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
OK! It looks like this will be the END of our Headmaster’s time on Twitter…

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Thanks for joining us for this Live Tweet, everyone. Sorry that it wasn’t more educational.

Jean Grey School @JeanGreySchool:
Detentions for all resident students!

Kid Gladiator @KidGladiator1:
For something that I assume must be a reward, these detentions are rather incredibly boring.

E3 update- twitter and Facebook coming to the 360

Big social networking news on day 1 of E3!

Twitter and facebook are coming in the fall to a console near you! As long as that console is an XBOX 360 that is.

Twitter works how you expect it should. You follow updates from your friends while posting your current goings on, all from the comfort of your couch.

Facebook was announced by none other than my wife that doesn’t know she loves me, Felicia Day(the guild, Dr. Horrible). It works along the same way facebook users have become accustomed to. The added bonus is that it uses the xbox’s own menus! As if that wasn’t enough it also includes a feature called FaceBook connect that enables user to share screen grabs from in game and share them with your fellow gamers!

Let the parade of halo tea bagging profile pics begin!
