OprahToday's a day for saying goodbye in the mysterious land of Twitter-Wood. (Not for us, mind you — we're not going anywhere!) The Oprah Winfrey Show comes to an end today after 25 seasons on the air, and while many people across the globe are mourning the show's conclusion, many stars and celebs are marking the occasion with their tongue firmly in cheek.

Meanwhile, longtime "Law & Order: SVU" actor Christopher Meloni is reportedly exiting the show, leaving his fans (and some of his colleagues) in shock. But the saddest and most surprising news of all is the death of CNBC news anchor Mark Haines, who passed away unexpectedly at his home yesterday evening; his loss is marked in today's Twitter-Wood as well.

But there's happier news today, too. Two more people have discovered the awesome power of "Bridesmaids," while the long-awaited "American Reunion" finally enters production, with Stifler's mom firmly in tow.

Osama bin LadenLate last evening, President Barack Obama announced that Osama bin Laden has been killed by United States forces in an operation conducted in Pakistan. The news set Twitter ablaze immediately, with countless Hollywood icons and celebrities weighing in with their thoughts on the 9/11 architect's death.

Responses from actors, writers and filmmakers alike differed dramatically in terms of how to react to the news. Some comedians, including Dane Cook, approached the announcement with as much comedy as the situation could possibly afford.

Beleaguered "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof even endured yet another insult towards his show's conclusion, this time with a smile. Most surprising of all, it may have been Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who first brought news of bin Laden's death to Twitter. And, yes, Charlie Sheen said "winning." You knew that was coming.

Harry PotterWhy does Twitter exist, you ask? So that we can get instantaneous access to awesome breaking news. Like the fact that Elizabeth Banks has officially confirmed that she'll star in "The Hunger Games" as Effie Trinket, for instance. May the odds be ever in her favor!

Even as "Hunger Games" ramps up, the "Harry Potter" movies start winding down — but not without releasing one heck of an epic trailer for "Deathly Hallows Part 2," and Twitter users across the world fell head over heels with the new movie.

Megan FoxEven if you don't like 3-D glasses, you still may be able to enjoy "Jackass 3D," at least that's what David Spade thinks. He seemed to have had a bad experience getting his glasses to agree with his nose, but in the end he still gave the movie high marks.

In other critical assessments, James Gunn believes "Piranha 3D" belongs on "best of the year" lists rather than "worst of the year" shout-outs, and Richard Kelly sounds like he has lower expectations for the world after seeing the documentary "Inside Job." Feel free to agree or disagree with them after the jump, where you'll also see what Jesse Tyler Ferguson did instead of wearing purple today and who said they almost hit Megan Fox with their car.

It's nice to see that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has a sense of humor about the way people are reacting to "Inception" — not that its weekend on top at the box office should have him being defensive. The movie got a largely positive, if occasionally confused reception on Twitter in the meantime. You can check out what Shannon Elizabeth, Emma Caulfield and Ice-T thought down below.

Elsewhere, Selena Gomez had a great birthday, in case you were wondering. You can find out why, along with what Jaime King might look like as Aurra Sing in "Star Wars: A New Hope," a relationship between BP and Mel Gibson as imagined by Kevin Nealon, and which "Cowboys and Aliens" scene Jon Favreau has been getting ready to shoot after the jump.

Twitter-Wood name dropping was in full effect today, with Tom Felton running into Robert Pattinson, Simon Pegg hanging out with Christopher Lee and David Pressman having drinks with Sam Worthington. Even the loners were tweeting about other people, though, as Greg Mottola shared his first memory of seeing the late Alex Chilton, and Neil Patrick Harris clarified Hank Azaria's role as Gargamel in "The Smufs."

Check out what everyone was saying about each other after the jump, where you'll also find Frankie Muniz's "American Idol" frustrations, Jimmy Fallon's case for canonizing Samuel L. Jackson and an unsettling shot from Kevin Nealon taken on the set of his new Adam Sandler movie. It's all in Twitter-Wood for March 18th, 2010. Read More...

Between Alex Meraz and Jodelle Ferland, someone may need to put on a gallery showing of "Twilight" actor artwork. While Ferland was busy drawing Taylor Lautner, Meraz was hard at work with his paints, and he TwitPic'd a shot of his project today.

Elsewhere in Twitter-Wood, birthdays were the hot thing today. Kim Kardashian revealed what she did for Reggie Bush in honor of his special day, and birthday boy Justin Bieber pretty much took over trending with the birthday wishes he commanded. Check out all of that below, along with Mandy Moore's fondness for the late Jay Reatard, which I share, and James Gunn's affinity for David Mazzucchelli's graphic novel "Asterios Poly," which I also share.

A few days ago, "Up in the Air" author Walter Kirn was convinced he'd been passed over for an invitation to the Academy Awards. It appears there is a happy ending to the story after all, though, as Paramount eventually came through, according to his tweets last night.

Today, meanwhile, Tiger Woods took the spotlight to apologize for his own oversights and mistakes. Most of Twitter-Wood had opinions to express, but I handpicked Gilbert Gottfried to speak for the crowd. Check out those retweets after the jump, along with an Ashton Kutcher tattoo, Tim Curry and Christopher Mintz-Plasse's reaction to "Valentine's Day." It's in Twitter-Wood for February 19, 2010.

News that "Poltergeist" actress Zelda Rubinstein has been taken off of life support didn't go unnoticed by horror movie fans in the Twitter-Wood community this week. The sad revelation caught the attention of both Richard Kelly and Jeff Katz (on his birthday, nonetheless), and I definitely echo those sentiments to her family.

In other posts, attempted underwear bomb from last week is still a trending topic among tweeters. Kevin Nealon was among those contemplating the ongoing investigation yesterday. Catch those thoughts after the jump along with Brian Lynch on Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner, Christina Applegate and Emmy Rossum on James Cameron's work in "Avatar" and more in the Twitter-Wood report for December 30, 2009.

Tiger Woods was a hot topic on Twitter this weekend, and that meant he became a trending topic in Twitter-Wood. Somehow his Cadillac Escalade has become a subject of interest too, particularly with one "Harper's Island" actor who pointed out that the golfer wasn't driving a Buick.

"Toy Story 3" director Lee Unkrich, meanwhile, retweeted some great shots of homemade models based on the Disney-Pixar series, they're mighty impressive. Also impressive has been the performance by "New Moon" in theaters this month, but Jim Carrey took note of the movie's rabid fans and issues a warning in response. Check out those tweets along with sad news from Emmy Rossum, how to get to Sesame Street and Sarah Silverman's reaction to "Precious." It's all waiting after the jump in the Twitter-Wood report for November 30, 2009. Read More...
