Today, Slade tweeted yet another hit with fans—a twitpic of Ashley Greene as Alice for “Eclipse”. The black and white close-up is a flattering picture of Greene, and was posted in conjunction with the following tweeted message: “Now making the prints for your cinemas. We are officially one step away from the screen. In celebration here is a http://twitpic.com/1qp5o1
