Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez: The Twitter response

By Jen Chaney

After photos of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez kissing leaked on the Internet Monday, the Twitter-verse naturally blew up with expressions of outrage, shock, positive thoughts for the seemingly happy couple and, of course, threats against Gomez's life.

And the Tweets are still rolling in. Here's a round-up of some of the more, um, notable comments, which provide a sense of the spectrum of emotions sparked by the most controversial canoodling of our time. Or at least of 2011 so far.

This Tweeter bluntly suggests that the star of "The Wizards of Waverly Place" must die. And she's not the only one.

Well, to be fair, some of the ones invoking penalty of death at least have standards. Like BieberAmovoce, who only threatens to kill Selena Gomez if she causes Bieber to suffer.

@selenagomez I hate you more I really love Justin Bieber, if he's happy I am, if you make him suffer I'll kill you! No doubt of beliebers!1less than a minute ago via web

This one is primarly concerned about the Bieb's safety in all this. Which is sweet, really.

@selenagomez ppl just shut up! Selena Gomez is just a bull[expletive]! Every beliebers hate her and I just want Justin bieber to be safe:pless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

More after the jump...

This one has taken the opportunity to inspire others ... and to capitalize on the promoted Twitter trend #quittingsucks:

#quittingsucks so step up and dont give up on Justin Bieber:) I lovee you biebs!less than a minute ago via web

Meanwhile, Such_A_Fridge is valiantly attempting to maintain a sense of perspective:

why is everyone talking about slena gomez and justin bieber :S tbh i don't think it's that bigless than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Let's not forget that there is a pro-Selena Gomez faction. And on Twitter, their voices shall be heard:

Selena Gomez is way too awesome for Justin Bieber... #stophatingselenaless than a minute ago via web

And then there are those who take this moment as an opportunity to renew their faith in Justin Bieber. Proof that the alleged relationship between Bieber and Gomez is indeed a religious experience.

If you really are a BELIEBER, no matter what Justin Bieber do, you'll support him until the end. That's what you call a fan.less than a minute ago via web

I guess Selena Gomez is just dabbling in a little experimental lesbianism. Not too uncommon for starlets these days.
