‘Game of Thrones’ anticipation is building across the Twitterverse
There are two types of people in this world: those who are tuning in to watch the first episode of the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” tonight, and those who inexplicably feel the need to inform everyone that they won’t be watching.
You can place us solidly in the former group. Following tonight’s season-eight premiere, we’ll be posting a recap and review of the show here at Triblive.com, but for now, let’s scour the Twitterverse and see how fans are preparing…
