Tiger Woods To Start Twitter Account (For Real)
Every morning I wake up, and read a story about how Tiger Woods is changing. I see headlines like, "looking to move direction in 2011," "different story next season," "rebuilding more than his golf swing." They're lazy and tired stories, meant solely to garner page views, but that's golf writing.
But, we have a new Tiger story on Wednesday. As he did in 1996, with two simple words (Hello world!), Tiger gave us all nine words today that should set off a Tweet storm; the guy might finally take hold of his Twitter account.
Granted, this is an account that already has nearly 100,000 followers and he's only sent four tweets ever, but if Tiger is really "changing" (read: not buying it), this might be a step in the right direction (read: still not buying it). Also, Tiger doesn't really seem like the exclamation mark type of guy.
But, yeah, Tiger is going to be tweeting. So, follow him or something. Or not.
(Also, two Twitter stories in a row? Yep, it's that time of year, folks.)
