Twittering over Oscars
Ellen DeGeneres is the host for the 86th Academy Awards on ABC.
This event was made for live tweeting. If you’re on Twitter and love the Oscars, follow features writers Rachel Sauer and Melinda Mawdsley as they share their thoughts about the Oscars from Rachel’s couch, probably in pajama pants with slices of pizza.
They plan to start about an hour before the event with our red carpet coverage.
Rachel’s handle is @msdinosauer. Melinda’s is @gj_outandabout. Join the conversation!
