As long as you don't mind one-way conversations, Twitter is great for breaking news. I basically use it for hockey/sports coverage and that's it.
that is pretty much what I assumed it would be. Never was much impressed with the media, but some of these inside jokes have been funny. Having seen them all serious and focussed through the playoffs it seems entertaining to follow their enjoyment and celebrations.
I know this "keeper of the Cup" guy enjoys his job but really some of the things he has to go through would drive me nuts.
Guess I'm not cut out for that type of work. I'd be too worried that the thing would get lost, or damaged beyond repair.
I wonder if he counts "incidents" and accidents in number of times he'll need to execute a cleaning procedure on the Cup...
"Ok Kopi is picking up the Cup, that's three silver polishes...ok he put it on some dirt, that's a base varnish, drying and two base polishes...ok he walked by and dinged the Cup mouth, that's minor hammering, one sanding and five polishes to the Cup mouth..."

I got that too, and the Neanderthal's very few tweets were mostly juvenile at best.
Which brings up a question...I have seen this a few times now where an athlete will retweet some moron's post like above for embarrassment purposes, but some of these knuckleheads actually endeavor for this attention.
Which is better, if you are the athlete or celebrity? Retweet it for embarrassment, or ignore it?
