The Braves and their poor usage of the hashtag #ThePenIsMightier

What a very unfortunate hashtag.

When autofill messes up the tweet

When you have autofill set, sometimes the computer will fill in words they assume you are using. Take this for example. Somehow, #Athletics became #atheism.

Looks like CBS has been using the word “atheism” a lot lately. What an unholy situation to be in.

Darren Rovell: Heartless monster who has no sympathy for Paul George’s injury

Darren Rovell tweeted that out about an hour after Paul George’s nasty leg injury. While important, the timing is bad. This goes to par for what Rovell is about. He doesn’t value people as people, rather they are assets to a company.

Majestic’s Twitter account promotes a fan wearing a counterfeit jersey

Majestic, the official uniform outfitter of Major League Baesball, is out and about at the All-Star Game. They are snapping photos of fans in baseball jerseys. Seems like a cool thing.

Lids and their poor-timing Manny Machado ad

Lids put out this tweet advertising Manny Machado and his comeback. (It was also put on their Facebook.) This comeback, I assume, is in reference to the season-ending injury he suffered last season.

But of course, if you mention Manny Machado’s name, the thing that pops up to your mind was his stupidity from last weekend.

Temper tantrums. Evil smiles. Throwing bats at people. That’s what comes to mind.

So is it a comeback from the five-game suspension that he was handed for all that?
