I like this one from him:
"Taking a **** next to your teacher before class... #awkward"
Pics or gtfo.
I sort of hate following athletes on twitter because inevitably I respect them less based on their idiotic posts. Alec Burks' twitter is all incoherent babble. Of course, they'd probably say the same thing about me on message boards.
wait, orms is back? Edit: NM. he's still waiting.
Asl ong as the fire isn't at the end of a doobie....
Get that kid in an English comp class already.
Why the hell do people care how he spells on Twitter?
ya srsly tho lolz
If you know how to spell, why the **** wouldn't you do it on Twitter? Unless you're trying to look ignorant...
It's not so much the spelling as the overall dumb-assery reflected by the content.
I wonder how Mac would have handled Twitter in his day? I can't stand reading these kid's tweets or whatever you call 'em. If I were an employer, I'd check every applicant's Twitter account if I could.
I would ban Twitter. Football is not a democracy and the 1st Amendment should not apply unless you want to quit the team. In my opinion, all Twitter does is reinforce stereotypes on a lot of levels. The intelligent players do not seem to use Twitter and the ones that do unnecessarily put themselves and their reputations at risk.
Then you shouldn't be on the internet if you don't want any dumb-assery.
Then don't read them.
What did Orms say that would ruin his reputation? Twitter is a great invention IMO.
Twitter's fine. It's just dumbass attitudes like "why would you worry about spelling on Twitter?" that are dumb, imo. I understand if you have to use some shorthand to bring a tweet in under 140 characters, but to just throw out a bunch of pathetically misspelled bull**** just because "it's Twitter" is dumb. I really don't understand the point of communicating at a low level when you have the ability to do better.
And I don't understand why it matters how they spell on it.
I'm sure you don't.
It matters because it's public communication. It's not a text to your dumbass friends. Anybody can see it. Have a little ****ing pride and express yourself like an educated human being.
Dude, look at who you're talking to.
Yah! You god damned idot!
Because it is how you little ****s are learning to communicate. One of these days, you may actually have to write a coherent memo or report. Twitter is just evidence of the dumbing down of your generation.
I don't tweet, but I do text fairly often. If I can't fit what I want to say into an accurately spelled and gramatically correct text, I don't send it. I'll send an e-mail, or I'll send two texts. I hate what texting and twitter have done to the English language.
You should hear how some of these people talk in person. It doesn't impact me so I don't worry about it.
Who will write the memo's explaining the new TPS reports?
If any of these kids get a government job how is anything going to get done?
Seriously though, I am also concerned about the impact Twitter, Texting, etc. have on phone and in-person communication. Many of the young kids we interview just do not have the personal skills anymore. All they want to do is email, tweet, Facebook and Myspace each other. You can forget about putting them in front of a client.
If you didn't read tweets, you would have written, "You must listen how a protion of these individuals commnicate when amongst others. It effects me minimally, therefore I ingore their poor communication."
Nah not really #smdh #realtalk
It is strange... The **** I have to write for work is so intense and formulaic at times that being able to write stupid **** via text or on allbuffs without editing it is a relief. Like two different languages. I'm not speaking for tini specifically, and I am a weeee bit older than that little ****, but I have a feeling the younger generation will be just fine.
I think it's fine. It's just different.
My generation has difficulty writing a well-composed letter.
This is just the next step. The evolution of language doesn't bother me. I'll just need to adjust.
One point I do agree with is that technology is pushing us to impersonal communication. We lose something significantly human when we stop speaking to each other, especially face-to-face. lol: at my making this point on an internet message board.)
Separate names with a comma.
