Tweeter's Digest: TV folks Twitter about the end of the world

May 20, 2011 |  1:59 pm

Another day, another apocalypse scare. This time, the end of the world has been predicted by Christian radio broadcaster Harold Camping of the Family Radio organization: He points to Saturday as the start of the Rapture.

Hollywood folks were tweeting about it late this week with a mix of silliness and wit. Denis Leary (@denisleary), who combined his Rapture riff with a reference to disgraced Arnold Schwarzenegger (who himself has some familiarity with post-apocalyptic scenarios from his time in "The Terminator"). Zooey Deschanel (@therealzooeyd), Garry Shandling (@GarryShandling) and writer/director Paul Feig (@PaulFeig) made plans for their last day, while "The Office" star Rainn Wilson (@rainnwilson), Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) and show runner Jane Espenson (@JaneEspenson) prepared for the worst.

Meanwhile, "How I Met Your Mother" co-producer Carter Bays (@CarterBays) and "Lost's" Damon Lindelof (@damonlindelof) teased fans with the answers to the universe — or at least to their shows.
