Oh boy, do we love us some Twitter. The Internet’s version of Open Mic Night at the Laugh Factory has been very good to us, as well.
We use Twitter to entertain ourselves, mine for information about the Milwaukee Brewers, connect to players, and interact with our audience. We love that those of you who follow us reach out and talk to us, ask questions, and share our silliness with your friends.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the capability to get back to each and every one of you as often as we like. We have work, and school, and social lives, and short attention spans – all of that works against us sharing everything we’d like with you on Twitter. Enter Tweets of the Week – where we take a few snapshots of our last week on Social Media and highlight them for you.
Just so you know we care.
So here’s a quick primer: we are going to share with you a Minor League and Major League player’s tweets that we think you ought to follow/read. We will also give you our favorite Tweet from the staff (I will not include myself, because then I will ALWAYS choose me). We will also show you a tweet or two from our colleagues in the blogoshpere/”real” media (read: people who get paid more to do this) and finally, our favorite fan’s tweet. Away we go!
Minor League Tweet of the Week:
About the time I think I’m a good guy at cooking I put metal in the microwave by accident. Girls I need help please haha
— Clint Coulter (@ccoulter12) May 8, 2013
We’ve all been there. See? He’s just like us – except when he’s not murdering his microwave he’s playing professional baseball as a first round draft pick.
Major League Tweet of the Week:
— John Axford (@JohnAxford) May 4, 2013
John Axford gets the nod because it works on so many levels – for one, he’s replying to our very own Justin Schultz. For two, he’s reminding us that true love has no boundaries.
Staff Tweet of the Week:
Does BA ever shut up about Molina? — Curt Hogg (@YouAStupidHogg) May 4, 2013
Curt wins this week because we go to Curt when the tough questions need answering. WE’RE ONTO YOU BRIAN ANDERSON.
Media Tweet of the Week:
We have a tie!
I think Segura is Spanish for “suck it Angels.” — Will Carroll (@injuryexpert) May 9, 2013
My Spanish is a little rusty, but that seems legit.
We love Adam (and every Brewer fan should) – and we love the Brewer Nation, too. And we love snarky tweets. THE PERFECT STORM.
Fan Tweet of the Week:
Because truer words were never spoken:
