Brett Lawrie: Twitter drama queen

Sep 26, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

Or: Great Moments in Social Media.  From Monday:

After that he tweeted something else. Then he quit. Then, yesterday, he was back:

In Baltimore on Tuesday, Lawrie didn’t want to talk about what prompted him to first delete then revive his account. “It doesn’t matter anyway, it’s back up now.”

Best likely explanation: kid is 22.  Go look at most 22 year-olds’ Twitter feeds. It’s like death, chaos and immaturity came together in a vortex of unreadable horror. I suppose Lawrie is allowed to have a 24 hour Twitter tantrum.

    I hardly even think Twitter is social media.
    Humans don’t need it.
    Bahh! That kid is approaching my lawn!

    Craig…you do realize P.C. will now be forced to make an excuse or otherwise sugar coat why don’t you?

    Crisis averted. The world just wouldn’t be the same without the wit of Brett Lawrie. How would we know whether last night’s game was “awesome!!!”, whether he was enthusiastically rooting on a fellow jock (“lets go!!!!!”) or what sort of mode he happens to be in (usually #beast).

    Serious question to anyone who follows this guy: Why?

    This shall be my final comment of all time ! Take care HardballTalk.

    Hey, what’s up guys?

    • Reflex - Sep 26, 2012 at 3:02 PM

      Can we ask what happened?

      • Gobias Industries - Sep 26, 2012 at 3:06 PM

        It doesn’t matter. I’m back now.

    A “twantrum”, if you will.

    Bibi Jones is 21 and, to be honest, I quite like her Twitter.

    This is but nothing. In a game this week he tried, TWICE, to break his bat over his knee in a huff. Failed both times. Dude needs to chill a bit.

    It’s a “Blue Jays thing”. Arrencibia & Joey Bats routinely block people who have the nerve to say something they don’t like.

    …info-suicide is painless/it brings many changes/and I can take it or leave it if I please…da da da da da da da-dum…

      I recently learned that song was written by Mike Altman (director Robert Altman’s son) when he was only 14 years old.

        Damn, that is one depressed kid!

    Twitter sucks and the fact this is even a story is just sad. And the fact I’m even taking the time to comment on something I think is sad is also…sad.

    It blows my mind that the Jays (and I’m guessing other teams) sell shirts with the players’ Twitter handles on the back. Anyone who would buy one of those I would want absolutely nothing to do with.
