M. Night Shyamalan Joins Twitter, The Internet Responds

M. Night Shyamalan

When M. Night Shyamalan join the world of Twitter, I immediately thought, “This guy’s going to get slaughtered.” So far, it hasn’t been a slaughter, but neither has it been the warmest of welcomes. Right when it became aware the divisive director – and a director I still like, The Last Airbender and The Happening notwithstanding – the twist jokes came.

So. Many. Twist. Jokes.

I searched through the twitter-sphere to see what type of flack he was getting, and so far, a decent amount. Honestly, I’d be lying if I said some of these tweets didn’t make me laugh, but then I felt kind of bad. Think about it, isn’t it pretty cool for a director, especially someone who has plenty of harsh critics like Night, to put himself out there online to interact with fans? I think so. Not only that, there’s something so cowardly about a random twitterer sending off a dig directly — or indirectly as well — to a director/actor, considering they probably would never say it to his or her face.

However, I still feel obligated to share some of the more funny (and mean) tweets made at Shyamalan’s expense.
