Twitter takes creepy 'Paddington Bear' still and makes it creepier

Note — we couldn’t resist climbing onto the #creepypaddington bandwagon, so we’ve added some Paddingtons of our own.

You know Paddington as a sweet, cuddly, duffle-coat-clad bear who spends his time eating marmalade sandwiches and being adorable. But when a still from a new Paddington Bear film appeared online Tuesday, Twitter users saw a whole new side of the beast.

Enter #creepypaddington, the best image mash-up game since sad Kanye. Twitter users put the affable bear into horror scenes and spectacles, somehow managing to make him even more creepy. See our favorites below. (Warning: gore; bears.) READ FULL STORY

George R. R. Martin has just entered a land far more terrifying than the place beyond the Wall: Twitter.

Nielsen reveals top 10 TV series on Twitter and the year's most tweeted-about episode

If television gave us anything to tweet about this year, it was Walter White’s journey from chemistry teacher to Heisenberg to whatever it was that he became.

Nielsen has released its list of this year’s most talked-about series on Twitter, which was calculated from September 1, 2013 to May 25, 2014. Breaking Bad not only topped the list — with an average reach of 6 million people per each new episode — but also took home the award for the greatest reach for a single airing, thanks to its buzzy series finale. Viewers’ final hour with Walt, Jesse, and all those crazy Nazis reached 9.1 million people on Twitter, making it quite literally the tune-in event of the year. However, The Voice set the record for total tweets sent about a single episode with 1.92 million tweets about its episode on May 13. READ FULL STORY

Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Emma Stone, more read mean tweets about themselves -- VIDEO

Julia Roberts’ gigantic mouth looks like it will devour an elephant in one bite. Mindy Kaling is not funny or attractive; she has an annoying voice and just plainly sucks. Emma Stone looks like she smells like cat piss. Matthew McConaughey, quite plainly, is a d–k turd.

All these things are true… according to citizens of Twitter, anyway. They’re each included in Jimmy Kimmel’s latest installment of “Mean Tweets,” which asks famous people to read the nasty stuff that normos are writing about them on the internet. It’s tough to say who wins this round: Gary Oldman, who can barely keep it together? Sofia Vergara, who has a snappy retort to the troll slagging off on her? David Blaine, who accidentally proves his detractor right? No, wait, I know the answer: It’s June Squibb. Why? Just watch.

High schooler tries to get out of finals with Twitter

Kids these days!

The latest trend among high schoolers is to try getting out of finals using Twitter. Unfortunately, that method isn’t as effective as they may hope.

Andrew Muennink, a senior at Texas’s Round Rock High School, recently sent out a photo with art teacher Cindy House. The two are shaking hands in front of a whiteboard reading “15,000 RTs and no art final” — meaning, of course, that if Muennink’s photo was retweeted 15,000 times, he’d be safe from the test.

The Black Keys' Patrick Carney has some choice words for Justin Bieber... again

Back in February 2013, an unlikely Twitter war broke out — Justin Bieber and his millions of Beliebers began attacking The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney after the drummer made some off-handed comments to TMZ.

When a paparazzo asked Carney if he thought the pop star should feel snubbed by his lack of a Grammy nomination, the rocker replied: “Grammys are for music, not for the money, and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”

Bieber didn’t take too kindly to that response, telling his followers via Twitter that “the Black Keys drummer should be slapped around haha.”

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Carney is reflecting on the incident, which lasted for months as Bieber’s fans berated the drummer on social media. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber responds to Seth Rogen hate on Twitter -- VIDEO

Justin Bieber found out Seth Rogen doesn’t like him, and he seems bummed about it.

Earlier this week, Rogen spoke to Howard Stern on Sirius and reminisced about the first time he met the Biebs. They were at a German talk show, and someone told Rogen that Bieber was a fan and wanted to meet him. But when the two had their meeting, Bieber didn’t exactly show his excitement. “I was like, ‘He’s a little bit of a motherf—er. Whatever. He’s a bit of a d—,'” Rogen told Stern.
