Get a load of Matt Steinmetz, a Bay Area radio guy, spewing some colossally dumb shit onto his Twitter feed about Andre Drummond, dunking, free throws, and Playing The Game The Right Way.
Last year, a feeling crept up in me like dread until I could no longer ignore it: Twitter was making me dislike people.
Jazz center and large Frenchman Rudy Gobert sent a semi-hot, cryptic tweet two days ago:
ESPN told us yesterday that tweets from NFL reporters Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen in which they implausibly expressed strong desires to spend New Year’s Eve eating Domino’s pizza were improperly not labeled as ads, and that in the future all promotional tweets from ESPNers would be properly labeled. Today, an…
NBA sage Bob Ryan is just going for it today. Hours after calling ex-Warriors coach Mark Jackson a “Bible-pounding phony,” Ryan—who has never been adept at Twitter—sent a flood of tweets in just a couple of minutes.
Shaun Smith, a defensive lineman who last played for the Chiefs, rattled off a couple of thoughts today about Kansas City’s upcoming playoff game against the Texans. When he faced some pushback, Smith tweeted a photo of a gun.
Dan Haren, the now-retired MLB pitcher who overcame his inability to throw a pitch over 90 mph in his later seasons, reflected back on his career today with candor. Most of the times he remembered were moments where he was trying not to give up a home run. Also, Haren said he used Imodium, a lot.
The Jacksonville Jaguars got walloped by the Houston Texans today to end their season at 5-11. The team lost their playoff chances a few weeks ago, and understandably, people are going to be frustrated. Apparently, some tensions were aired out today. What follows is a six-tweet exchange between Ryan O’Halloran of the …

The three young gents you see in the photo above are Sergi Guardiola, Moisés, and Xemi, all new Barcelona players whose signings were announced just a few hours ago. They were supposed to shore up the reserve team. “Supposed to” is the operative phrase there, since Guardiola—no relation to Pep—has already been dropped…
Miko Grimes, the wife of Miami CB Brent Grimes, has never been shy about sharing her feelings on the Dolphins, more specifically that everyone who’s not her husband is trash. But after the Dolphins sputtered to a 18-12 loss to Indianapolis, Miko sprayed some exceptionally caustic vitriol toward QB Ryan Tannehill, and…
As selected by the staff of Gawker. These tweets are terrible, man.
On Sunday, some social media manager got his or her Twitter accounts mixed up and made it abundantly clear that the @redskinsfacts account, allegedly run by a “growing online community of passionate Washington Redskins fans and others who support the team’s use of its name and logo,” is in fact being run by someone…
Tickets went on sale today for next summer’s European soccer championship, and to help promote the sale UEFA is running a Twitter campaign that lets users create a “supporter’s badge.”
While Washington was in a close game with Chicago, some suspicious tweeting went down. These two tweets, sent from two purportedly different organizations that have no affiliation with each other, look pretty similar. Given the exact similarities between the two tweets, this is almost certainly a copy/paste job.
