The same can almost be said for Twitter accounts these days and if ever there’s a guy who knows how to “manipulate 140 characters,” it’s Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter.

It's one of the few new series last season that really captured audiences and instantly converted them into mindless, uh, zombies, obediently tuning in each week to see what blood, guts, and gore-thirsty creatures Sheriff Rick Grimes and the rest of the survivors had to deal with, or decapitate and disembowel, this time.
