Solar Eclipse Spawns Twilight Twitter Jokes

MTV has gone to Twitter for their Twilight Tuesdays this week.  Social media sites were a buzz with news about the solar eclipse and MTV found a great way to tie it in with Twilight.

“Just because there’s a lack of “Twilight”-themed videos and interviews doesn’t mean the very dedicated fanbase stops talking about their favorite franchise. And never underestimate the ability of a “Twilight” fan to bring up the subject in any conversation, particularly when said conversation involves a natural phenomenon that ties into Stephenie Meyer’s fantastical world.”

@LordVoldemort (one of Alphie’s favorites on twitter) had this to say:  “Twilight fans, I hear if you look at the #eclipse tonight you’ll see vampires and werewolves frolicking. Or go blind. Whichever.”

And Dan Munz included the image below with his tweet, which is something Many Twilight fans have been joking about for a while now.  “Wow, this eclipse is truly stunning. I can even make out a bit of twilight on the edge.”
