No matter what Ed Boon -- the director of Mortal Kombat 11 -- tweets, he's bombarded with Mortal Kombat tweets or Injustice tweets, depending on which is the more current game at the moment. Even if Boon tweets about something not related to video games in the slightest, most of the many replies will be about NetherRealm Studios' latest fighting game. Right now, most of these replies are begging for Mileena, demanding a new Joker trailer, or asking for certain buffs and/or nerfs. In short, on Twitter, there's no escaping Mortal Kombat and Injustice fandom for the director, but that's changing.
Twitter announced today that it will soon let users have more control over who replies to a tweet. For example, in the future, users will be able to turn off replies all together. Beyond this, there will be more specific restrictions, such as only allowing people you follow and mention to reply. In other words, it's exactly what Ed Boon needs. That said, taking to Twitter himself, Boon quoted a tweet with this information, and then listed all the replies he's constantly bombarded with.
Where's Mileena?— Ed Boon (@noobde) January 8, 2020
Nobody cares....we want Rain!
Buff Shao Kahn!
Joker Trailer now!
Where's Mileena? https://t.co/EIl86qMyPq
As you can see, it's not a mean-spirited roast, but a wink and nod to his followers who are constantly in his replies about the games he makes.0comments
All of this is to say, the days of begging for Mileena may be over, which should bring not just some peace of mind and joy to Boon, but many Mortal Kombat fans.
