Spanning the Twitterverse to bring you the constant variety of tweets
The thrill of the retweet and the agony of the unfollow
The human drama of the twitter timeline
This is CadChica’s Wide World of Tworts
EARS TO HISTORY
On this day:
A DODGER OF ANOTHER COLOR
Dodger blue. Once upon a time, the Dodgers and Dodger blue meant something to baseball. Not as a laughing stock like they are now but historically speaking, the Dodgers were one of the “model” franchises with a wonderful history. Shoot, any team that has Vin Scully as their announcer has to be pretty special right?
Alas, times have changed. Dodgers are an ownership mess and filed for bankruptcy. Of course, they are also a hot topic on Twitter. One is informative and the other is a slam at Fox and their business decisions.
NFL MEDIA TWEET
Signs that the NFL lockout has gone on too long for the media:
TWEETING ALL COPS?
Great job here by Jason McIntyre from The Big Lead for getting all of the tweets together (read from the bottom, up like it says to get the complete story). Darnell Dockett was stopped by the cops yesterday. And he wasn’t happy so he tweeted about it.
Cops did eventually let him go but it begs the question, how will tweeting during these events affect the outcome? Or will it? Maybe not for the regular Joe and Jane like you and me (no my name’s not Joe or Jane) but for celebrities or athletes? Maybe.
POWER OF TWITTER IN SPORTS
Okay, so you’re not exactly sold on the affect that Twitter can have in sports. Darren Rovell, CNBC Sports Business guru, is a self-proclaimed Twitter-holic. He understands how social media interacts with sports. Read into it what you will but I believe it’s worth reconsidering the anti-Twitter sentiment, if you’re an athlete.
TWEETS OF THE DAY
This is always fun for me. I love scouring my timeline for some great stuff. One is laugh out loud and nod vigorously–I can relate. The other, a special kid getting some special recognition. Thanks Jenny and well done Anthony.
