ABOUT THE BOOK
Now that Twitter has been around for a few years, one would think its users – both celebrities and “normal folks” – would realize the damage the social networking site can do to their reputation when they reveal their personal thoughts.
Many have realized the site’s ability to attract attention and controversy. 2011 saw no shortage of controversial Tweets from those who both intentionally and (more often) unintentionally found themselves under a public microscope.
MEET THE AUTHOR
Jeff Shand-Lubbers specializes in absolutely nothing yet still enjoys writing about a variety of topics, including current events, politics, baseball, survey research, technology issues, and anything else he finds even remotely interesting.
After growing up in the Midwest he has spent the last few years moving from the east coast to the west coast before again finally settling on the east coast.
His free time is spent waiting for the Detroit Tigers to finally win the World Series and keeping up with the endless energy of his 2 year old son.
EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
For starters, there’s Chad Ochocinco, no stranger to controversy long before Twitter existed, but certainly no stranger to it once he took to the tweeting airwaves, either.
Some other controversial Twitter topics from the NFL in 2011 involved the NFL lockout, Jay Cutler and his perceived injury in the playoffs (which turned out to be completely legitimate), and tweets from Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall that truly shocked some people.
Here’s a look at the best Twitter had to offer in 2011 from the NFL:
Chad Ochocinco: "@Mason_Foster great hit last night, if u're fined I'll reimburse u boss. That's the way the game should bplayed. Stay health n have a good yr"
Chad Ochocinco: "#OCNN I've partnered with Snake Jungle to go out and become the first black #SnakeWrangler thanks to my owner Mike Brown for the great idea"
Chris Johnson: "Can these fake Titans fans STFU on my timeline, I don't have a regular job, so don't compare me to you, and I can care less if you think I am greedy"
