Sometimes you can Tweet too much. And I think that’s what Adam Aron is doing.
Exhibits A, B and C:
D) So you're telling me things haven't changed?
Just moments after saying the Sixers “will continue to strive to build a winner,” Aron puts out a fan poll asking if his team will be a seventh or eighth seed, or miss the playoffs entirely? Cool.
Are these not the most Sixers Tweets ever? Hey, we may be awful, but don’t worry, the teams we trail by three and four and a half games in the standings lost last night, too! Sunshine! Do you think we’ll eek into the playoffs and get bounced in the first round?? Please RT.
We’ve been doing a lot of this fan reaction stuff today, but sometimes the stories, quite literally, write themselves.
Adam Aron (@SixersCEOAdam) fashioned himself a Twitter superstar this past season, using the social network to communicate with fans and tell everyone how valued their opinions were (!!!). Most of the feedback he received in his first season as Sixers CEO – the honeymoon season – was positive, or at least constructive. But not today, kids. Not today.
Here are just some (for real, I ran out of steam just dragging these into the stream) of the Tweets to Aron in response to the Sixers signing Kwame Brown to a two-year, $6 million deal, with a player option for the second year. Enjoy.
The subplot of yesterday’s Penn State news was whether former Joe Pa apologists would be able to remove their blinders and see that Paterno, too, covered up the actions of Jerry Sandusky. Judging by comments and Twitter, even the most staunch Paterno defenders were able to find fault in their former hero. Some, though, will never be able to wrap their heads around the notion that the great Joe Paterno, who did much good in his life, was willing and able to protect a child predator.
All day yesterday, I wondered the best way to tackle that issue on the website. How do we give those people a voice? Well, after reading our friends over at Busted Coverage’s 20 Craziest Black Guy Twitter Reactions to Joe Paterno and the Freeh Report (go read it when you’re done here), I decided to roundup (and respond to) the Tweets of steadfast Joe Pa supporters.
Let’s hear from them… after the jump.
Last week, when Shane Victorino and Charlie Manuel visited the MLB Fan Cave, Charlie was asked to read Phillies Tweets on Tweeeeter, as he calls it. Hilarity ensued:
"Kinda leaves you out on a limb right there, doesn’t it?"
"Shane Victorino tweeted: The pound Nike Hypercool shirt is pound clutch on hot days like today. Pound swoooooooooooooosh. What does that mean? I just shot a basketball right through the net."
"s that what tweetin’s all about? I don’t need to learn it."
There’s more, but you’re going to need to watch the video… which is after the jump.
