To Tweet or not to Tweet!

Of all the social networking sites available today, I think Twitter is the one best suited for athletes and celebrities.  My space is on life support, and Facebook is a place where ‘regular people’ post pictures, reconnect with old friends and family, or keep tabs on their social circles.  Twitter gives athletes and celebrities the forum to express whatever is on their mind (in 140 characters or less) without the pressure of cameras, microphones, or the dreaded follow up question.  However, this medium has gotten some athletes into hot water.

Lebron James is the latest to receive some unwanted attention due to a tweet.  After the Lakers drubbed the Cavs 112-57 this post appeared on Lebron’s Twitter account, “Crazy. Karma is a b****. Gets you every time. It’s not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything!”  The tweet (or retweet as Lebron later denied those were his words) wasn’t that offensive, but I can guarantee Lebron would have been more sensitive if a reporter stuck a tape recorder in his face and asked, “What did you think about your old team losing by 55 points to the Lakers?”  Twitter will never replace a well written column or blog, but it has taken away the invisible wall that athletes had around their true feelings when dealing with the traditional media.  Twitter has helped us answer the question, “Tell us how you really feel?
