At 6:25 a.m. PST on Monday morning, March 17, the Los Angeles area was a bit shaken up … by a 4.4–magnitude earthquake.
The quake was centered about 15 miles outside of downtown LA, and seems to have woken up the majority of Hollywood with a bit of a jolt. As of 9:30 a.m. PST, there has been no significant damage related to the earthquake (unless you count missed beauty sleep in Tinseltown), but that doesn't mean some temperamental tectonic plates haven't given the Twitterverse something to buzz about.
Perhaps David Spade put it best:

And everyone felt the need to chime in, too. After all, what do you do in the face of disaster other than tweet about it?

I would come up with a witty tweet about the earthquake, but if I'm being honest I was asleep through the whole thing. Futons = comfiness

why was my initial reaction to this earthquake "holy shit it's the aliens I'm screwed"

I also find it funny I thought to check twitter to make sure it WAS an earthquake, not the world coming to an end. Half kidding...half not.
