Twitter comiccon stats

It’s safe to say that Comic con in San Diego was a huge success. Fandoms were in their element as stars of different TV shows and film franchises hung out together and took photographs, people got into their costumes and cosplay, and the world of comics and films was celebrated. The twitter stats have been released showing the reach of the convention. The world was captivated by the release of new film trailers for all big upcoming franchise blockbusters. The story peaked around the release of new Star Wars film and their panel, the release of their themed emojis, as well as excitement surrounding the new Hunger Games: MockingJay part 2  teaser releases and again their panels. Jennifer Lawrence, star of the Hunger Games franchise was the most tweeted about celebrity during the whole event.

So excited to announce my very own #StarWarsEmoji#Phasma pic.twitter.com/vpZwKiLxLa

apple pay

Apple Pay has launched in the UK! That’s the good news. The bad news is that it isn’t as widely available as you may think. A few of the biggest UK banks support it, but a few of the biggest banks don’t. The banks available are: American Express, First Direct, HSBC, Nationwide, NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander and Ulster Bank. Stores you can you use it in are, Apple, of course.

Only joking you can also use it in Boots, BP, Costa, KFC, Lidl, M&S, McDonalds, Nandos, Post Office, Starbucks, Waitrose and Subway, among a few more, and more being added in the future.

For now though, you can definitely buy food and toiletries with it! We look forward to seeing Apple Pay add more to their offering.
