In the past five days, two former first-round receivers were traded for fifth-round draft picks. One of them, Santonio Holmes, engaged in some Twitter misadventures before he was traded. The other one, Ted Ginn, stepped into a deep pile of Twit after the deal was done.
As pointed out to us by Robert Littal of BlackSportsOnline.com, Ginn directed a three-pack of hostile and inappropriate terms at a Twitter user who said, “thank goodness you are gone!”
The problem with Twitter is that it allows folks to respond to provocation before thinking. Or without thinking.
So maybe Jim Rome was right when he recently suggested (tongue in cheek) that folks should be required to pass a test before using Twitter.
For Ginn, he should be required to complete a one-question exam before logging back onto Twitter: “Have you lost your mind?”
