The tweets from Comic-Con's Hall H line are absolutely insane

And you thought the bathroom queue at Electric Picnic was bad.

IF YOU WERE on the internet this past weekend, you were likely exposed to a number of tweets and articles relating to Comic-Con high jinks. There were celebrities, panels, costumes, film previews and more.

It’s all quite insane. (Think BT Young Scientist Exhibition x 1,000,000.)

Perhaps nothing did a better job of capturing the absolute insanity of Comic-Con quite like the Twitter account @HallHLine, which is a Twitter account devoted to providing updates. From a queue. To get into a hall.

But not just any hall! Hall H is the centre of all the action at Comic-Con.

With a capacity of 6,500, it’s where the likes of DC, Marvel and all the major TV networks go to unveil sneak peaks and host celeb-laden panels. People spends hours, even days queuing just to gain entry.

This year, the line was a mile-and-a-half long.

Which is where @HallHLine comes in. It describes itself as:

I am the longest, nerdiest, most demoralizing line at any convention ever made and that’s just how you like it. Come get in me.

Over the weekend, it tweeted updates from the line, celebrity spottings and more. It led many others to jump in on the act.

Some people saw it as an endurance test.

Others were excited.

While others were frustrated.

Others swore never again.

And others looked forward to next year.
