An earthquake in Haiti that reportedly topped 7.0 on the Richter scale shocked everyone on and off Twitter, with many linking to donation sites and posting hopeful thoughts. Rainn Wilson pondered a personal connection to those he visited recently.
In the U.S., Team Conan has been amassing supporters this week after the "Tonight Show" announced he wouldn't accept a move to the 12:05 slot to accommodate Jay Leno for NBC. Larry King and Dax Shepard both sided with a third party, though, in the Conan vs. Leno debate. Check out those posts below along with postmortem micro-review of last night's "American Idol," Kat Dennings on "Thor" and Emmy Rossum's surprise encounter in Whole Foods. It's all in the Twitter-Wood report for January 13, 2010.
