Tickets for an appearance by "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson at the Orland Square Mall went on sale early and were gone within an hour. [...] Tickets had been scheduled to go on sale at 7:15 a.m., but so many people came ahead of time that organizers decided to begin ticket sales by 11 p.m. Tuesday night. By midnight, they were all gone.And people are Not Happy:
Hot Topic are liars. Once again, this Chicago one was a disaster. Tons of us have called over the week and they all gave us the same answer. "You can’t line up till 5am. If you do you will be escorted out." Well you can only imagine what a big surprise it was when we got there at 1 in the morning only to find out that they had started to sell them early. It is sad because they lied to so many of us. Some people had driven hours to get there only to find out it was too late.And this is from someone who did get a wristband. Good job, guys!

Another Twatlighter report from San Francisco, this one involving the Tom Sturridge (Lurky RPattz BFF) t-shirt:
Rob: Who's tha- OH MY GOD!Meanwhile, celticangel76 reports from Dallas, with pictures. (ETA: A more in-depth entry.)
*everyone starts laughing, including Rob*
Rob: Jesus Christ!
Me: I love him. Shut up.
*Rob keeps laughing*
Rob: That's so funny. That's the most bizarre thing I've ever experienced.
From swsa: Zac Efron is jealous of Robert Pattinson and Twilight hype? "In fact, most seem to agree that Rob can rise above the Edward curse while Zac’s ability to make the leap is decidedly less certain. So rumour has it, he’s been in a snit for days, especially when he goes online and is confronted by Twilight hysteria everywhere." Also, Pattinson doesn't look like a melted Ken doll.
