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.
seth mcfarlane you are perfect

Seth McFarlane is perfect is almost every way
— Courtney Kaslow (@CKaslow) February 25, 2013
Not gonna lie Seth McFarlane is actually perfect. I would marry him in a heartbeat

Which is great because he is on record as loving and respecting women.
We're trending! Must be a lot of sandwich makin' goin' on right now.

Omg, did you see her dress? Impress your co-workers and sketch it from memory with the #GalaxyAtWork. twitter.com/SamsungMobileU…

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.
The only thing better than Bradley Cooper is Bradley Cooper in a tux. #oscars

I DREAMED A DREAM THAT ANNE WILL WIN #TheatreKidLife #Oscars2013

God is dead.

One of which was pretty on-point. It was not the one from the "Theatre Kid Problems" feed.
Even Professor Trelawney could have predicted Anne Hathaway winning Best Supporting Actress. #Oscars2013

Just a friendly reminder that Harry Potter never won an Oscar. Apparently, inspiring an entire generation isn't good enough. #Oscars2013

I want to know who is responsible for making me present with Bella Swan. Someone is getting Crucio'd up in here. #Oscars2013

Unexpectedly, Harry Potter parody accounts were in an almost-impressive frenzy for the entire night. Huh.
You can tell who's doing coke#oscars

While the rest of the world watches the #oscars2013, what are you doing? I'm in the studio finishing the new MARS album.

Django Unchained is the most racist movie I have ever seen, it sucked!
