HOLLYWOOD, CA – As many of you know, The Matts (whose Tweet Pic went Twitter-crazy yesterday) have been trying to promote our columns and the site through the use of Twitter. I for one have been slow to adapt to this trend. I admit it is a great vehicle to self promote. At the same time it is also a great way to get yourself in a whole lot of trouble. Look what it did for Anthony Weiner’s popularity. Twitter is perfect for people with short attention spans.
That means people will sometimes Tweet without thinking. Just look at Twitter’s number one Tweeter, Ashton Kutcher. Here is his take on the firing of Joe Paterno:
“How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.”
Well, since Ashton sent off that tweet he heard from some of his eight million followers why Joe Paterno was fired. As a form of penance, Ashton has decided to take a break from the Twitter universe, opening the door for some less famous Tweeters, who are seeing their Tweets read by the masses:
Andy Reid: “I’m not saying Micheal Vick is not hurt, but I’ve seen tougher ribs on a McRib sandwich. Chomp.”
Chad Ochocinco: “Many people ask what my last name really means. I’m here to say right now that the literal translation is ‘8 Mexicans drowning’.”
Matt Lineart: “What team am I on again?”
Jeffrey Loria: “People better take the Miami Marlins seriously this year. Take a look at our new uniforms and you can see we mean business.”
Ozzie Guillen: “Our new Miami Marlin logo looks like it was designed by a bunch of South Beach faggots at a rave.”
Ozzie Guillen: “Mr. Loria wants me to apologize to the South Beach faggots. I know you had nothing to do with this logo, you would have made a much better one than this piece of crap.”
Stay tuned tomorrow for Angry Ward, who promises to tweet more anger in the months ahead.
