We all have those moments late at night when the Netflix queue is just “meh,” everything in the freezer has been microwaved and eaten, and all there’s left to do in this world is to tweet. It seems that Larry King had that kind of night as he tweeted with the stamina of a thousand youths late last night (or more like early this morning). It all began with a critical appraisal of Dane Cook’s Showtime special (as it usually does) and devolved into an appreciation of Derek Jeter, Oreo cookies with milk, and a hatred of people with perfect teeth. Let’s try to figure out what the hell is actually going on.

ISIS, a group based in Iraq and Syria, has beheaded several hostages in the past months and distributed videos of the murders to the masses. C.K. suggested that the group “f–k each other in the mouth with forks.” He also proposes that we “f–k ISIS in all 3 holes and make a fifth and f–k them there too” before apologizing for writing “3 holes” instead of “4 holes.” Good thing that’s cleared up.
Jimmy Kimmel brought in a gaggle of current and retired football players (and one Erin Andrews) Thursday night for a special NFL edition of “Mean Tweets,” just in time for the regular season to commence. From Michael Strahan’s infamous tooth gap to DeSean Jackson’s penchant for affordable mall-style clothing, Twitter does not leave any possible insult hanging. Below, watch Terrell Owens get called a piece of donkey excrement (in slightly less euphemistic terms) and more. READ FULL STORY
This afternoon, news broke of Joan Rivers’ death. Celebrities, media outlets, and friends have been offering their condolences on Twitter and social media and sharing their best memories of the late comedienne:
It is a massive undertaking that requires a Stevie Nicks dance party, forced insomnia, and the stamina to do a whole lot of sitting.
Dedicated fan Ellen Lloyd (@eel8) took up EW‘s challenge and livetweeted through an entire day’s worth of Emmy-nominated shows featured in the EW 24-Hour Binge Guide, with the Twitter time stamps to prove it. And Lloyd wasn’t messing around. Per the guide’s eating and drinking requests during various shows, Lloyd ate like the Dowager Countess during Downton Abbey with tea and Peppermint Milanos and drank like Scandal’s Olivia Pope (albeit in the form of a grape Popsicle in lieu of wine).
It wasn’t easy: Lloyd had to shirk off her distaste of Girls by watching the divisive “Beach House” episode, yet she managed to handle Dunham’s irresolute Brooklyn hipsters. It’s a feat to be admired, so Lloyd’s endeavor will henceforth be referred to in this post as “The Binge.” READ FULL STORY

All’s fair in love, war, and basketball — but that’s not always true on Twitter.
Jimmy Kimmel brought back his popular “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” segment on Sunday night, but with an NBA twist. In the segment, timed to game 5 of the finals, Kimmel brought on basketball stars such as Dwight Howard and Jeremy Lin to respond in person to the insults they’ve received online.
Celebrities are mourning the death of radio legend Casey Kasem, who died of complications from dementia on Sunday at the age of 82.

Here are just some of the tributes Kasem’s famous fans have posted to Twitter since his passing:

The East Coast-West Coast finals matchup drew A-list interest as the Kings topped the New York Rangers in a thrilling Game 5, which took two overtimes to decide. Defenseman Alec Martinez scored the heroic Cup-winning goal, causing celebrities to blow up Twitter with their excitement (or, in the case of some New Yorkers, resignation):
