When Non-Rhetorical Twitter Questions Go Wrong

Kyle Scott - June 3, 2014

There is a fine line between teeing up a lively Twitter discussion and setting yourself up for ridicule. Let’s start with Donovan McNabb, who excels at the latter.

Former Five continues to poll his followers about inane topics for his radio show. Who do you like to win the NBA Finals and why?  Were you surprised at the Spurs or disappointed in the Thunder? As expected, McNabb didn’t quite get the responses he was looking for:

Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-19-23_AM
Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-18-29_AM
Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-18-45_AM
Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-19-06_AM

Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-28-15_AM
Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-26-32_AM
Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-26-32_AM2
Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-26-32_AM3
Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-26-59_AM

That should help steer the on-air conversation.

To be fair, McNabb did receive a handful of real responses, but per the usual, they were drowned out by the dickish ones.

And then, of course, there was this question from the Flyers’ official account which, at least on Twitter, didn’t receive one actual response:

Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-24-07_AM

It’s a dangerous world out there, on Twitter.

I can’t get enough of Donovan’s Twitter account.

Aaron Hernandez’s trial should begin in about a year.
