It’s good to be a nerd right now. Those of us with a great love of comics have never had it better. Comics are officially mainstream. They are a billion dollar industry with television shows, and movies breaking records left and right. The stars of these movies and television shows are everywhere, especially social media. Twitter has brought a whole new experience to watching these shows and movies. Directors are releasing tons of behind the scenes photos and stories on their social media accounts, the stars live tweet and interact with viewers throughout every episode. I greatly enjoy this, and for the first time, we have interactive television. Directors and writers are incorporating fan theories and ideas into their work. It’s a great time to be a nerd. Here I have compiled a list and links to the official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Whosay accounts that are the most fun to follow. I am even going to break them down by shows and films for you so you can get the most of your interactive experience. These are all the official and verified accounts of these people, and for most of them, they run them themselves.
