I've seen a few of my friends on here ask, "Why should I use Twitter?"

Personally, I use Twitter because it's brief, easy, accessible from my cell phone, and often results in hilarious conversations.

For Example: A common behavior one Twitter is to RT (Re-Tweet) other people's tweets to you own Twitter. This is the common way of spreading news articles or ideas. Because anyone who follows you can reply to you with an @your-user-name, every tweet has the potential to turn into a thread of responses.

Yesterday, I ReTweeted a Discovery article with the added comment that it looked sparkly. A fast-paced bout of hilarity ensued.

A few of you might recall me making this post a few months ago.

It's Young Justice!
Not 'Justice'! It's 'just us'. Adults never listen.

Okay. For serious. Rumor mill hit the streets a few months ago when Arrowette & Aqualad's designs were accidentally leaked by voice-acting candidates. Today, the announcement was officially made by CN and DC. Cartoon Network will be having a Young Justice cartoon.

(The larger version of this image is available at either of the linked announcement websites.)

Cartoon Network provided the following description of the series:
"Young Justice: In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over—to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you're not just a normal teenager? What if you're a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you're worthy of the Justice League? That's exactly what the members of Young Justice—Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis—will find out: whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero?

This all-new series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based upon characters from DC Comics. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer. Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday, The Batman) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, W.I.T.C.H.) are the producers.
" [Edited for better readability by s8.org/Greg W.]

NOW. As long as that red-haired and green-eyed Kid Flash is Bart Allen combined with lack of research, I'll be a happy camper.

Until proven otherwise, I will believe:
1. That Robin is Tim Drake. That is Tim's color scheme, and no other Robin would chill with Kon-El.
2. Artemis is a re-name of Arrowette, a.k.a. Cissie King-Jones.

An update from Greg W. himself (the man who gives me confidence the show will kick ass) via Ask Greg on s8.org:

" We're hard at work on the 26-episode first season. Got a great writing staff in place, and the designs look phenomenal. I really think the series will kick some major ass!

And that's about all I'm allowed to say right now...


Yes, I have a gallery of image macros at my disposal.
