If this is any indication, it seems as if the days of big press conferences and announcements are over, as everybody - including network bigwigs - are opting to make big revelations via Twitter.  Fox and sister studio 20th Century Fox TV reportedly sealed a two-year renewal for procedural Bones, but it was executive producer Hart Hanson who revealed the news via an at most 140-character Tweet.

"Just got a call from Bones Fox exec James ('Don't call me Jimmy") Oh with an official unofficial pickup,"  Hanson reveals to his Twitter followers Saturday morning. "Bones is back for Season V!"

And while there hasn't been an official word from both the network and the studio, neither would also refute the statement, and his 3,2000 followers had first dibs on the news.

The Bones finale that aired Thursday featured a twist in storytelling, when the murder mystery involved all the characters living alternate lives.  For instance, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) were married, and they owned a nightclub called The Lab. A dead body was found at the club, and detectives Cam Saroyan (Tamara Taylor) and Jared Booth (Brendan Fehr) were investigating. Angela (Michaela Conlin) was the hostess, Sweets (John Francis Daley) was a bartender (or psychologist, if he's to be believed), Zack (Eric Millegan) was Brennan's assistant, Fisher (Joel Moore) was a chef, Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) was a crime novelist who's a regular club denizen, Daisy (Carla Gallo) worked in coat check, Vino (Ryan Cartwright) was the DJ, Wendell (Michael Terry) was the bouncer, Max (Ryan O'Neal) was a corrupt politician, and Clark (Eugene Byrd) was an aspiring musician.

It was revealed later that the episode was a story Brennan was writing while Booth has been in a coma for four days due to a reaction to the anesthesia after the brain surgery.  Finally, Booth woke up - with amnesia.
