Spanning the Twitterverse: Pat Summitt

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

For lack of a better term, this day was crazy.

Yes this is a sports related blog but there were a large volume of tweets by sports folks about The Smiths’ (Will & Jada) possible break-up. Oh and in case you didn’t hear, there was the infamous East Coast Earthquake of 2011.

While I would have loved to do this post about the East Coast Bias earthquake, there was another story of great surprise and shock today. Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt has been diagnosed with “early onset dementia“.

Talk about an out-of-left-field story today, that was it. Here’s how the Twitterverse first found out:

STUNNED. That’s how I would describe the Twitterverse. Here are some reactions, along with links to stories. Take some time to click on the links and read the stories. Well worth it.

TWEET OF THE DAY

A wide range of emotions to be sure. If you’ve seen her or read anything prior to today about Pat Summitt, or even just read it today, you would understand why the below is the Tweet of the Day:

I’ve never met her so I can only go by what I read and hear; a formidable woman with great resolve who has a passion for her players and basketball. Prayers going up for Pat Summitt and her family today.
