Teedubya getting after it

Take that, Chiefs.

http://www.reddit.com/r/nfl/comments...n_me_to_get_a/

The KC Chiefs just blocked me on Twitter. LOL Last night, I tweeted that for the 4th year in a row, the Chiefs are at the bottom of salary cap spending and that the owner, Clark Hunt, is hoarding cap dollars. The Chiefs commitment to mediocrity has made me not care much about being a fan... They responded with this DM.
http://imgur.com/7VbfJ
I responded that it is good to know that the KC Chiefs have an immature teenager running their social media.
I, as a fan for my whole life of nearly 40 years, who have never seen the Chiefs in a Superbowl, nor have I seen a playoff win in nearly 20 years, nor have I seen a QB drafted in the last 27 years... I have a right to be pissed. The Kansas City Chiefs have no right to be pissy toward the fans. We are the ones paying your salaries. Shame on you, Chiefs. Oh, and congrats on 50 years of being in KC. 10 years of greatness, followed by 40 years of pathetic profiteering.

Look at the response against ari on the Chiefs websites.
Wow. That is just...insane.

Twitter is as important, or more so, than any single or conglomerate of websites, including Facebook, for news of the world.

The prosecution rests, your honor. It's like getting people to understand al jazeera (america or aj Japan) network. "It's mooslim"!! No, it's very well respected as a news outlet. But you know the reaction you get just from the name.

at chiefzilla. I look at those posts and just go "wall of text"... Next post".

I signed up in 2007. If I'm not mistaken, I think Ari started a thread about Twitter around that same time. Like you Dane, I follow major news outlets, favorite writers in sports, and some folks who interest me around the world.

It's actually how I found out about the tsunami in Japan as my feed went freaking nuts at 0200 that morning. I woke up trying to find it on the news but it wasn't announced for another twenty minutes. Incredible medium for sure.

I was a huge twitter user 4 or so years ago. My wife and I were both really big into it. Then it got very consuming, and it became difficult for me because many of my students began using twitter. It had become my outlet for my edgier personality, so I had to start self-monitoring. Then it was no longer that fun.

Anyway, it was all good back in the day, but I feel like it's going the same route of facebook and becoming passe and past the curve. Reddit/pinterest/instagram all seem to be a little more "cutting edge" at the moment, though I'm not really that interested in them either. In all honesty, I'm a little sick of social media, though I maintain an observational interest and keep up with the trends. I guess I'm getting old and out of touch or something.

I use Twitter to follow current events and people that are fun (Steve Martin and Albert Brooks immediately come to mind). I have followers, yet Tweet rarely. It's kind of odd for me to tweet daily minutiae.

Plus, the pressure to say something witty or important is a little daunting, especially considering some of my followers.

I had like 700 followers (not really many in teedubya terms, but my students are always impressed when I tell them I had that many). I used it to engage in local community building as well as discuss teaching politics and culture. As such, I was doing a lot of dialog and retweeting. But yeah, I should probably just create another account and use it passively. I definitely appreciate the medium, but I just haven't gotten back into it (probably because I feel like all the punkass kids got on it and ruined it for me).
