How Not To Tweet 2: The Greensickening

Since I posted my first How Not To Tweet posts, my Twitter friendo with the mostest and 2013 graduate of a local high school that will be playing baseball at an NWAACC school this spring has been tweeting ridiculously stupid things up a storm, to the point of absurdity. It actually has become morbidly entertaining. This is really, really how not to tweet.

First up, the consequences of his big drunk Saturday night from the last post…

coach

Weed, weed, weed…

drugs

My use of Urban Dictionary and my Googling of weed terms is up by well over 100%…

knifers

I will admit, I’m learning a lot…

kindanappy

These tweets make me wonder about his storied high school baseball program…

w&b

Google reminded me that this is from a Dr. Dre and Eminem song. Apparently I had forgotten about Dre. Still…

violence

Man, is he repellent. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

This is yet another reminder, nothing you do online is private. His account is locked but I followed him before he locked it so I still see all of his updates.

I’m not outing this athlete because I don’t think it is my place to do so, especially since he thinks his account is private. He will eventually out himself to his athletic department or coaches, I’m sure. I’m just using him as a cautionary tale.

It is also important to mention that recreational marijuana use is legal in the state of Washington and it doesn’t appear that the NWAACC has drug testing. Perhaps the college he attends does, I can’t tell in a simple Google search.

I’m not being a prude, I know college kids are going to drink and smoke weed, it happens (though his use seems excessive. If it were anything other than weed, you’d be looking at someone that would be considered a drug addict). But you shouldn’t tweet these kinds of things, legal or not, athlete or not. It’s just stupid and will have a negative effect on your life, probably more than the drugs will.
