Philly newswoman 'breaks bad' with ill-conceived tweet

Joyce Evans anchors the news for Fox 29 in Philadelphia. She also seems to be a fan of Breaking Bad. So what better way to tease the lead story on yesterday’s 10 p.m. news — a mass shooting — than by dropping a BB reference?

People on Twitter immediately responded — and not necessarily in a good way. READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family' meets 'Breaking Bad': Jesse Tyler Ferguson takes a Heisenberg tour of New Mexico -- PHOTOS

When Jesse Tyler Ferguson grew up in New Mexico, Heisenberg was just a German physicist, not a porkpie-hat-wearing teacher-turned-meth kingpin.

But the Modern Family star clearly supports the White family’s Albuquerque takeover: When he visited his home state over the weekend, Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita took a tour of all the locations made famous by Breaking Bad and posted pics online.

First stop: Walt’s house, though that doesn’t look like a green Aztek in the driveway …

Kanye West feuds with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 5.56.58 PM

International buffoon and INFREQUENT ALL-CAPS TWITTER USER KANYE WEST is freaking out against Jimmy Kimmel right now on Twitter. Mr. Kardashian is upset about a segment from Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (embedded below) that used child actors to spoof Kanye’s recent crazytown BBC interview.

It’s somewhat painful to read, but I’ve found my new favorite hashtag: #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK

Big-time NSFW content — updated with Kimmel’s on-air reaction — ahead. READ FULL STORY

'South Park' spoofs Alec Baldwin's trouble with Twitter -- NSFW VIDEO

Last night, South Park‘s season 17 premiere did what the show does best: It made fun of a high-profile celebrity in a very NSFW way. The celeb in the hot seat? Alec Baldwin.

While on the set of a commercial, “Baldwin” reveals that he sometimes “accidentally tweets things that are homophobic.” But because he doesn’t think that way and only types that way (his “thumbs are homophobic,” he says), he chops off those thumbs. So how does he communicate with the rest of the world? By joining a new form of social media (with a very, er, interesting name) that broadcasts your every thought to all your followers. And let’s just say, Baldwin’s every thought is not about his sugar-free diet or his new baby daughter.

Watch the very NSFW clip below:

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon: Two Twits making hashtag happen

Last night, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake tried to make “hashtag” trend all by itself.

Timberlake, who’s spending every Tuesday this month with his late-night pal, in advance of the release of his new album, The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2, on Sept. 30, was just sitting in Late Night‘s guest room, eating some homemade cookies, when Fallon stopped by to hang. Or as Timberlake said, setting off the hashtag olympics, he was just “hashtag chilling.”

Back and forth it went, with Fallon landing the best hashtag shout-outs — hashtag [Cookie Monster eating sound] and hashtag [Ray Romano calling for Debra].

The guys got carried away — which was the point — but Questlove’s hashtag contribution might have the best hope of actually trending.

Do you hate 'Breaking Bad' spoilers on Twitter? You should probably thank Netflix

Whether you’re just now starting to binge-watch Breaking Bad as a whole or you’re  just a few hours behind on the latest episode, Netflix is making sure you don’t find out Walt’s fate before you’re ready.

Netflix, which houses Breaking Bad‘s entire library, has launched a Spoiler Foiler to block all tweets that could potentially spoil anything Breaking Bad-related. By going to the website and logging on to your Twitter account from there, the Spoiler Foiler filters out any tweets with the words “breaking” or “bad” in them. So, it could technically filter out a tweet having nothing to do with the show, but that’s probably worth the risk.

Analysis: VMAs push Miley Cyrus social buzz to a high... and a low

They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, but is there such a thing as bad social buzz? Miley Cyrus’ twerk seen round the world certainly caused a stir at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, but the fleshy show-stopper featuring grinding teddy bears and Robin Thicke earned the former tween queen a stark mix of both praise and resentment.

EW has partnered with General Sentiment to develop an aggregate score report — not just on what is trending in social media — but on what users are actually saying on social networks about any particular topic at a particular time, in this case Miley Cyrus over the past week.

In the heat of the moment Sunday night, Cyrus’ positive sentiment score hit its highest level and the volume of tweets about her was on the rise. But those playing Monday morning quarterback on Twitter sent the anti-Miley chatter to its highest levels, causing her sentiment score to plummet. The volume of chatter about Cyrus and her performance continued to rise on Monday, even as the content of those conversations became increasingly negative.

Check out the HIT score below.

Coming out on Twitter? That's so Raven

Think Raven Baxter saw this one coming?

According to an article written in the National Enquirer last spring, “lesbian rumors have hounded” ex-Disney Channel star Raven-Symone “for years.” Those rumors apparently reached a fever pitch in 2012, when the Enquirer reported that Raven was living in a “love-nest” with openly gay America’s Next Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston.

Rather than shoot down the speculation, Symone responded by simply tweeting the following: “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life.” In other words: “I’m perfectly comfortable in the glass closet.”

Or at least she was until today, when Raven tweeted this message:
