We knew about the autobiography but the news about multiple plays is new!

After a spate of tweets last night where JMS tried to explain that TV is a business and that shows aren't ended just to betray viewers, his tweet count is at 9974. Wonder what his 10,000th tweet will be!

Huh, I wonder if this also sees him stepping away from TV and film... but with a few things in the works, I guess not just yet...

JMS 10k tweet

JMS last tweet after midnight:
"I'm now 3 twitterings shy of 10K tweets. Any significant questions that should be addressed, suggestions as to what I should speak about or do (other than "knock it off") in tweet #10,000?"

You all with a twitter account: tell the great maker what should his 10k tweet about...
But hurry up. This tweet will be coming very soon.

I suggested either:

- at least three tweets updating us on all the straczynski-verses

or

- his favorite passage from this autobiography "Saved by Superman".

We'll see...

1. Had a fun idea. With #Babylon5 coming in June to @PrimeVideo this is the first time in about 15 years the show's been available for viewers to stumble upon for the first time. That gives us two kinds of viewers: newbies with lots of questions....

2. ...and original viewers (henceforth the First Ones) revisiting it who also have answers. Let's make this account Ground Zero for the two sides to meet in neutral territory for mutual enlightenment. So put the word out near and far to newcomers: Party at Joe's Place!
JMS is taking questions about B5 on twitter to celebrate the Amazon thing. Loads of stuff in his feed recently. Jan, are you ready to be real busy on Twitter?!

JMS tweet at 4:48 AM

Tweet question to jms:
"@straczynski Hi I just have 1 small question if you can consider the topic small.

Has they ever been an interest besides from fans for a show set on Vorlon?"

Answered JMS (second last tweet this early morning at 1:26 AM):
"I don't think we could afford to send a crew that far on location."

Noted JMS is still taking loads of B5 questions on Twitter. Kinda cool to see. Want to know something? Now may be the time to get in there. The Amazon thing has clearly put him back into B5 mode.

I am very surprised there isn't more discussion happening here about it if he is putting out so many Tweets.

I guess I've not seen anything new or groundbreaking, nothing that merits discussion so far, well apart from the remastered B5 thing... I guess e've covered a lot of ground here!

Yeah, really nothing earth-shattering. Maybe there'll be some stories come out after June 1? We'll see!

Wow, a twitter user going under the handle of 'Screen Identity' seems to have pushed JMS over the edge. I read back through the thread, many of the original tweets from the source are now deleted, but JMS responses remain. It seems that Screen Identity took an ultra hard line on B5's ethnic / gender / diversity / race and casting. All this with no appreciation of when the show was made. I have to note with these things CONTEXT is KEY.

JMS stays very level until pushed too far. I think he did well to stay civil for that long, talk about pushing an agenda whilst removing ALL CONTEXT and when your target is clearly progressive as hell. Way to alienate people and fulfill just about every echo chamber SJW cliche that we have forced upon us by right wing idiots. I sometimes have to facepalm at the militant Sense8 fans who seems to struggle with any other viewpoint other than their own.

Yeah - I went from being an Admin to banned in about 3 days when Sense8 was cancelled. Oops! I really did feel bad about the abuse that JMS was subjected to when he <gasp!> explained what his long experience told him would be reality when the show was cancelled.
