We all know that Twitter can mostly be a roiling fetid pit of despair and dysphoria. It’s what makes the place so much fun. But occasionally, there are those moments when you get to see the way this forum can be used as a tool for good. Or, for entertainment.
One good part of Twitter is that unique access to the players in industries can be found. While many are familiar with journalists being available (like sending potato gifs to Brian Stelter), the players in Hollywood can also be a good source of insight. Look beyond the celebrities, and you can sometimes get a peek at how the sausage gets made.
One recent example is due to a few of the artisans from the industry discussing how some amazing photography took place in the filming of Tom Cruise in “Mission Impossible: Fallout.” Cruise is often hailed as an actor for performing many of his own stunts, but the crew that has to film him frequently are just as outlandish. Screenwriter Cheo Coker was impressed.
