Rue McClanahan's death prompted an outpouring of memorial tweets yesterday, but her "Golden Girls" costar Betty White entered everyone's thoughts immediately thereafter as it sunk in that she is the last surviving lead cast member from the show.
Elsewhere, Olivia Munn provoked an unsurprisingly excited response from comics tweeters with her new role as a correspondent on "The Daily Show." You can find out who said what about whom below, along with Geoff Johns' countdown to the "Green Lantern" movie coming out, Marc Bernardin's thoughts on Jeremy Renner joining "The Avengers" and a reaction to a reviewer asking for a torrent recommendation.
It's all retweeted in your Twitter Report for June 4, 2010.
