Perhaps there should be an award for Best Use of Social Media In Accepting An Emmy Nomination.

The Twitterverse was ablaze Thursday morning as many of TV biggest stars reacted to this year’s Emmy nominations – in 140 characters or less, of course.

Tweets ranged from the serious to the absurd.  Here’s a few of our favorites:
