Monday was a Fail Whale for Bears fans when Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times confirmed that Bears QB Jay Cutler had shut down his Twitter account.
Jay didn’t really tweet that often, and while I wasn’t an avid follower, it was still nice to be able to tag him in tweets begging him to rehab his thumb as quickly as possible so Caleb Hanie could be released back to Pop Warner where he belongs.
It got me thinking though – there are many high profile celebrities, athletes and politicians on Twitter. Some of them embrace it, some of them barely use it, and some of them pay their agent’s 12-year old child to run it for them. In any case, I decided to compile a list of people who we would not miss if they shut down their Twitter accounts, in addition to a list of people who should keep on keepin’ on.
Please stop tweeting immediately:
Kim Kardashian – All Kim does is pimp out her shows, her family and all the brands that obviously pay her ungodly amounts of money per tweet.
And then every fucking tweet is “hey dolls” this and “xo” that – and then "come buy my crappy perfume and QuickTrim while I laugh about being a multi-millionaire for letting Ray J pee on me."
John Calipari – I was going to include him regardless because I can’t stand him, but then I went through his feed and came across this gem:
What the hell are you TALKING about, jackhole? Just go back to buying your Final Fours.
LeBron James - This made me laugh
You DO act LeBron - I think in the NBA they call it "flopping."
Lindsay Lohan -
She twats out (not a typo) the same bullshit as Kim Kardashian in addition to responding to the random suck-ups that still believe she has talent.
Also, can we discuss her avatar? No...just. No.
I would like to see more tweets from:
Jose Canseco - Simply because he is out of his mind.
Ozzie Guillen: Because what other tweets would take us 140 hours to intrepret 140-characters?
And finally...because he's actually FUNNY and I love him, Andy Roddick:
In all seriousness, I wouldn't be writing this if it weren't for Twitter (what's that? You wish Twitter didn't exisit now? RUDE), and I think it's a great social engagement tool. I love when athletes and celebrities do use it to truly interact with their fans rather than promote their craptastic clothing line and janky perfume. I understand self-promotion on here is inevitable and I've been guilty of it myself, however - mix it up DOLLS. xo
