Whoops he DID it again.
Johnny Manziel just can’t seem to keep his hands off his social media….or beer.
Having virtual access to the I WANT IT NOW social media by owning any of the technological devices smarter than us (smartphones, tablets and laptops ), it isn’t hard to believe that anyone can make a mistake while tweeting, facebooking, instagramming, youtubing, tumblering, wordpressing….. anymore -ings?
It’s true, nobody can escape the eyes and ears of social media. It’s EVERYWHERE.
But Johnny Manziel isn’t anyone.
Johnny got caught red-handed tweeting:
You just can’t seem to keep your mouth shut can you Football boy?
Now here is a thought: Wouldn’t you think a young guy who has been around social media his WHOLE life, a guy who is far more knowledgable than your typical older athlete about all the fun digital toys, interactive channels and open digital communication would know better than to stream his unfiltered opinions on a public platform that million and MILLIONS of people have access to? Yes, you WOULD think that.
ANOTHER thought: Being the only College Freshman football player to ever win the Heisman Trophy, wouldn’t he be surrounded by coaches, publicists, higher collegiate authorities and SEC conference officials to advise him to be more cautious and perhaps mute when expressing his honest opinion about issues that pertain to his athletic ability, academic standing and recreational activities in public?
Yes Johnny, social media is public.
You have thousands and thousands of followers, I don’t think your tweets will go unnoticed unless you start tweeting solely in emoticons. Hmmm…I may be on to something….
Then there is the loop-hole: He is twenty years old. What were you doing at twenty? Exactly…..nothing you would want to broadcast to the entire Twitter sphere.
He is one of the most popular youngsters in America because he has accomplished something no one has ever done before. Of course he deserves a little celebration, a kick back, a keg stand…what ever he chooses. He just needs to know the consequences of his actions, because his actions are being watched by the ENTIRE country. (Come on, what else do we gotta do?)
(I mean, come on, the kid is straight up goofy looking. Do you think he would be getting all this attention solely for his good looks…..?)
So dude, Mr. Football, just don’t air your frustrations in the Twitter world when you have over 400,000 followers, you AREN’T going to go unnoticed. But I bet you already knew that didn’t you…..
Sigh…..kids today 😛
