'Lost' Tweet Contest: The Winners

More

>Lost ended its six-season run last night, and in honor of the finale we posed a challenge to our readers: summarize the series' confounding, convoluted plot into one, 140-character tweet.

Hundreds of fans rose to the occasion, offering responses that were as poignant, funny, angry, and confusing as the show itself. In the end, though, we had to pick a winner (and two runners up). Here they are:

The winner: RyanMcNutt:
