Apparently Bucs Don’t Like GMC TwitteringMay 28th, 2010
Earlier this week Joe brought you news, via GMC’s own Twitter feed, that the Bucs first round draft pick had to leave a Rays game earlier than expected because so many fans were hounding him for photos while he tried to just sit back and enjoy the game (hard as that debacle was to enjoy).
Joe also noted how amused he is with GMC’s Twittering, that they were mostly fun and were hardly malicious or hurtful.
Well, it seems the suits at One Buc Palace are unnerved with GMC’s use of microblogging. Though Joe’s just connecting the dots, as GMC didn’t cite the Bucs, he did post that he is getting in hot water with someone over his Twitter musings.
Apparently my tweeting is getting me in trouble and I can’t be myself
This, however, was a short-lived self-imposed ban. GMC later threw caution to the wind and grew defiant at whoever is trying to censor him.
Man forget that! I’m tweeting ain’t nobody gone stop me from being me. I don’t do anything wrong or stupid!! So I’m back!!
GMC is right. He’s not doing anything wrong. It’s not like he’s pulling a Santonio Holmes writing about waking and baking or encouraging suicide, among other things. GMC’s Twitter posts are harmless as a kitten and often humorous.
That is, unless the Bucs (?) believe GMC asking where he should go out and eat because he’s new in town is somehow a threat to the state.
Free advice to GMC from Joe: If you want to keep Twittering, make sure that’s in your conteact, son.
