With anticipated hopes of Breaking Dawn making an appearance at 2011 Comic-Con, Twilighters were trying to get ticket this morning. And the Twilight hate began...but is our small little group to blame??

Comic-Con tickets officially went on sale today and for fanboys (and girls) everywhere, the race to get tickets has begun. So many people were trying to get tickets, in fact, that the online ticketing system crashed earlier this morning. According to the LA Times.
Minutes before the 9 a.m. Saturday start, the site was telling users that it was “currently over capacity” and to try again momentarily. Some buyers saw a page saying, “We’ll be right back. TicketLeap is currently down for maintenance.”
It was a stressful kickoff for what is sure to be a fun event in July... if you are a dork. Oh come on now. Don't get your Superman underoos in a bunch. I am just kidding around. Sort of.
This year's Comic-Con in San Diego (not to be confused with the New York one) will run July 21-24 and there are many creative explanations on social media today from fans frustrated by the ticketing fail. Here are some:
One tweet, from shaylrose, said:
freaking Twilight girls invading
Most of the users seem to blame Robert Pattinson, or at least the movie he stars in. Twilight and its presence in the past at the event was the main reason people seemed to think the servers were over capacity.

AnitaWhat also blamed Twilight:
Idea for smoother #ComicCon registration. Give twilight its own convention somewhere as crazy as their fans. Like Egypt
