To tweet, or not to tweet

Fans’ hearts sank on Nov. 19 when “Mad Men” star Rich Sommer (who plays Harry Crane on the series) tweeted that the series might not return for a fifth season. Here’s Sommer’s traumatic message: “I have no idea if there will be a season 5 of MM. I am operating under the assumption that there won’t be, until I hear otherwise.” Feeling the fallout and panic of fans (and presumably producers, network honchos and anyone else involved with the series), Sommer later clarified on his blog: “Hoo boy. Sometimes I forget about the Internet… Nothing official has been stated yet as far as a pickup, although it is a safe bet – a very safe bet – that the show will return in its usual fashion… As an actor who used to be unemployed a lot, and as a father of two, I choose to operate under certain pretenses until I hear otherwise… That is all. Retreating to my hole now. Goodbye.”
