Never to be repeated.

Whether you're super into it or bury your emotions in pharmaceuticals in order to cope with it, we are officially living in the future. Ipso facto, Twitter! People love to use that thing during big, relevant public events like the Academy Awards. It's like they don't know we all die alone regardless, or something!

Anyway, while some people correctly spent time complaining about Seth MacFarlane and others offering armchair commentary on dresses and things, lots of other people on Twitter got pretty weird. And weird in sort of unexpected ways! In all honesty, seeing people barrage social media with a bunch of inappropriate updates was one of the night's bigger highlights once the show got boring, which was early on. So, here is a slice of humanity in 2013. Make of it what you will.

Women Who Love and Respect Seth MacFarlane

Which is great because he is on record as loving and respecting women.

Misguided Advertising Tie-Ins

I feel like my coworkers would be really sketched out if I came in this morning and was like "Hey guys, cool dresses last night, right? Now watch me draw them from memory on this B-list smartphone instead of just Google image searching the actual pictures." But anyway, the Oscar Mayer plug is actually pretty good.




Also, This Bing Exchange



Oh, man were there ever jokes.

Vehement Reactions to Anne Hathaway's Win

One of which was pretty on-point. It was not the one from the "Theatre Kid Problems" feed.

Harry Potter Tweets?

Unexpectedly, Harry Potter parody accounts were in an almost-impressive frenzy for the entire night. Huh.

Assorted Celebrities Not In Attendance

As usual, a productive dialogue surrounding a productive event.
