Tweet of the Week – Marcus Williams

I have to be honest – most of the stuff that comes out of Marcus Williams’ Twitter account is nonsense; illiterate, ignorant, ridiculous nonsense. Take these for example:

a_williams_195“A chick ever sent u a pic of herself and her room was dirty but u ezpass it cuz she look good? Hehehe”

or

“Do baseball players have groupies? I wouldn’t know who the 1st basemen from the dodgers was if he walked right in front of me”

or

“Lmao if u remotely fart by someone’s face, it can get very funny if ur just a witness…”

or

“I HATE ppl that follow me and don’t reply to nothin. Its quite creepy, cuz u just in the cut being nosey. Like u in the bushes nearby”

or

“I have the most retweetable tweets”

You see my point. I mean, is a “verified account”even necessary for him? Recently, however, he had a half-coherent thought and decided to Tweet it. He didn’t attribute the information, nor elaborate on it, but I do believe in its vacnnlidity.

mw1ll Yo, twitter officially gets news faster than CNN!

This is something we’ve talked about all semester in class: how social media platforms are the new newspapers. People hear about something and instantly its on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc. etc. and it spreads across the web. I’m not sure what Marcus means by “officially” but I can see what he means. And if he can get it, mainstream media outlets should definitely be able to get it.

For making a valid point on your Twitter account, proving to me you’re not an idiot 24/7, and showing the effects of social media on the news business, Marcus Williams receives this week’s A.Martin Sports’ “Tweet of the Week.”

Mayweather v. Marquez (via athletes on Twitter)

I think we as students of UConn should get the option of ordering HBO in our dorms, suites, and/or apartments. You could even charge it to our fee bill. We want Entourage. We want Weeds. We want the big boxing matches. We want Mayweather v. Marquez.

mayweather-marquez.01.300w

Unfortunately, we do not get it. Any of it. I did find a couple websites that were streaming it online but neither had decent quality nor was in English. However, thanks to some of my friends on Twitter, I was able to follow the fight online through tweets.

Best Tweet Award – Kevin Durant – for referencing Marquez’s television program that showed him drinking his own urine in order to not lose any vitamins or minerals when using the bathroom.
