Arnold Schwarzenegger has been making headlines lately for his Hollywood comeback, but today, it's for sadder reasons: the former Governor and his wife Maria Shriver have announced their separation after 25 years of marriage. An unfortunate situation to be sure, but leave it to the celebrities of Twitter-Wood to find jokes in the midst of tragedy.
Excepting Arnold and Maria's breakup, the focus amongst film stars and writers on Twitter is fairly scattered today. One comedian has a reminder about The Lonely Island's new album, while another reflects on how little the world has changed in light of Osama bin Laden's death.
