Please post all interesting/spoilerish tweets in this thread. If a news article or new video is also tweeted (for example by SOD or NBC), it should probably go in its own thread, following our normal rules. This thread is for tweets, usually from someone on the list below, which give us information in some way about anything related to the show or upcoming storylines.

Please link each tweet and then set it off in italics, quotes or a quote box. To link a tweet, click "expand" and then click "details". That will give you the link to the tweet on its own page. If this is difficult (ie posting from a phone), please at least set off the tweet in quotation marks.

If anyone has names to add to this thread, please PM them to me rather than putting them in the thread. There are unfortunately a lot of fake accounts out there, and we want to verify each account is legit before putting it in this list.

I have entered the below list as a "Twitter List" under the DaytimeRoyalty twitter account. To access it, go to

http://twitter.com/DaytimeRoyalty/days-of-our-lives

Then click "Follow this list". It will then appear in your lists.

Thanks! :smile:

Regarding all the talk about head writers what's with Days and perhaps even daytime soaps at all that makes it seem to be hard to get good head writers? Another thing I thought of is Hogan when he took over, it seemed like he came from the prime time but I could be wrong. Anyway, I thought Hogan wrote exciting and he and ED seemed to have a good cooperation. Higley was terrible and wrote frankly crap nothing was interesting, when she was head writer, TomSell are sometimes good while they also have trouble keeping stories interesting and they seem to have a penchant for boring characters. What I would like to see is like a head writer who comes from primetime and can hold a high class of stories and characters.

I want to believe they're doing this on purpose just so that we would stop complaining.

I wouldn't mind Dena Higley returning IF IF IF I could trust her to write character-driven stories for John and Marlena. Unfortunately, given her track record with them, I don't have faith in her. Now Marlene McP is a different story. I trust the characters of John and Marlena in her hands. She knows what fans want.

I might could handle a co-team of them IF Marlene gets to set the tone for veteran characters, while Higley writes for Nicole and co (she is a good "Nicole" writer).

I'm just tired of seeing John and Marlena destroyed. So whoever is the next headwaiters, I hope they lay out an acceptible bible for Ken and co that makes sense and restores the integrity of these characters.

Maybe they could balance one another out. Marlene could pull Dena back from being too crazy and Dena could spice up Marlene's ideas.

okay....IMHO there is something going on here....WHY in the name of anything that is HOLY would ANY of these people post a facebook status update IF it didn't mean something right? Who's actively trolling twitter to see if any of these people have dinner or lunch together? Seriously....this is a nice way of letting the cat out of the bag......I've always noted how Days news seems to always take place during a time when the studio is dark....and well....the studio was dark last week and is dark this week...soooo.....we can expect the official news by Friday maybe? LMFAO.....oh dear.....maybe Dena and Marlene will be given script writer/breakdown writer duties if LB is moved up....and maybe LB was offered the HW job and turned it down because we all know how awful it is to work for Corday

Who was responsible for that disastrous Taylor character and EJ`s love of the scarf, Higgs or McPherson? I say NO to that person. There was no female character that I despised MORE than Taylor. She sucked big time regardless of who played it. I say that they hold a contest & get some fans to write stories or give ideas. In American Idol style, a winner is declared & they become a DAYS consultant, writer...It seriously can`t be worse than any of the stuff these recycled writers are coming up with.

Yeah, I might can handle them as co-headwriters. They might balance each other out. Marlene for "knowing" the vet characters and guarding their integrity, and Higley for exciting plots. Higley was good with the baby switch, I admit. She was a great AZ writer. James and Ariane will be working together again, and that's a good thing.

Wasn't Higley a script writer for the shows in the 80s and 90s? Anyone have any comparison to see if that is where she is really strong at.
She was part of the breakdown staff, but did write some dialogue from time-to-time too. Here's her "Days" resume:


Breakdown Writer (would also do dialogue sporadically in 1987): 9/85-1/86, 10/86-3/03
Head Writer: 3/7/03-8/15/03
Breakdown Writer: 8/19/03-10/03
Dialogue Writer: 9/19/03-11/5/04
Head Writer: 4/23/08-8/25/11

Looks like she was assigned one dialogue script per month in 1987 only, the rest of time (1985-2003) she was a breakdown writer only.

Here are the episodes she was credited for writing the dialogue in 1987: (Many episodes had no writer credits back then, so it's hard to say exactly how many she wrote)
2/27/87
5/27/87
6/29/87
8/10/87
9/21/87
11/18/87
12/2/87
12/8/87

In 2003, she wrote 14 episodes by herself:
2003: (14)
9/19, 9/22 (2)
10/1, 10/21, 10/31 (3)
11/6, 11/12, 11/20, 11/28 (4)
12/3, 12/15, 12/16, 12/24, 12/30 (5)

And in 2004, she wrote 7 episodes by herself, and 40 with her husband, Mark:

2004: (47) (40 co-written with MARK HIGLEY)
1/8, 1/13, 1/15, 1/19, 1/27 (5 solo)
2/5, 2/11, 2/19, 2/24 (2 solo: 2/5 and 2/24; 2 with Mark Higley)
3/3, 3/8, 3/10, 3/23, 3/29 (5)
4/7, 4/13, 4/15, 4/21, 4/29 (5)
5/6, 5/17, 5/25 (3)
6/1, 6/8, 6/14, 6/22, 6/25 (5)
7/7, 7/8, 7/13, 7/14, 7/16, 7/26, 7/30 (7)
8/9, 8/30 (2)
9/7, 9/9, 9/13, 9/21, 9/29 (5)
10/4, 10/8, 10/14, 10/21 (4)
11/1, 11/5 (2)
Thanks for all of the info, Jason. :)

By the group flying to NYC it looks like they are going over the head of Bruce Evans? I think he's only in charge of NBC Daytime and West Coast based. They're going to the big guns in the East?!

I like GT a little bit, but with his hands tied, he's worthless. He either needs freedom, or give it to someone else who can have freedom. Whoever takes the job needs to give Lucas a solid story, fix John and Marlena, come up with an excuse for all that Sami has done-or rest her character, wake Rafe up and put EJ with Nicole...and get Nicole's kids for her!!!!!!

Be careful what you wish for I always say......it was down with MarDar and yay Tomlin when it was thought his track record would mean certain pairings and look how that turned out :lol:

Doubtful we are in for some coup, but if there is change, for DOOL's sake, I hope they think it through and do not revert to dumpster diving.

I just pray to God that - whoever ends up getting the job -

1) Knows the characters
2) Can write exciting stories that KEEP people in character
3) Does not bring back Molly/Melanie

If you can do 1-3, you're hired.

Dena Higley HATES Deidre Hall (and the feeling is probably very mutual) and the character of Marlena. She doesn't get her AT. ALL. And she hates J&M and doesn't get them.

This show needs Sheri Anderson. Seriously, she's the only one who can save this basket of crap at this point.

They also hate Peter Reckell. Why on earth would Corday continue with this destruction. Oh, that's right, he doesn't have a brain.
