Tweets in the deep

When the intrepid adventurers in the Lord of the Rings reached Moria they heard drums in the deep. Now James Cameron has reached the oceans deepest point, the Challenger Deep in the Marianna Trench off Guam. I'm not sure if he heard drums, I suspect he didn't, but he's sent a tweet:

Just arrived at the ocean's deepest pt. Hitting bottom never felt so good. Can't wait to share what I'm seeing w/ you.
I'll bet he can't wait because he's going to charge you money to "share" what he's seeing with you. He has plans to release two documentaries with the footage he collects.

It's the first time since 1960 that anyone has been to the Challenger Deep. At 10, 898 meters below the surface, it's an impressive feat. Nice work James. And nice work Australian engineering team who built the submersible he piloted. Now how about lending me the keys?...
