What image do the rockets really wanna project on Twitter? If their Twitter account is straight corporate and never says a single interesting thing, what's the point of having one? If you have a semi-interesting one, in an effort to appeal in a novel way to some fans and drum up a bit of interest in your team, occasionally you might post something weird. Doesn't mean the guy has to friggin get fired over that.
Seriously, one weird post from a team that uses social media as much as any other in the league and they fire him? Was anyone in the world even offended by that tweet? What's the big deal?
^ It's a slippery slope. Today it's a suicide horse tweet. Tomorrow? A leaked audio clip of an 80-year-old owner disparaging black players.
This. You need to be smarter on what you post on a corporate twitter account.
A lot of my FB friends are up in arms all pissed off at the Rockets front office saying how they're going to unfollow the Rockets twitter. I just smh on how stupid they are because at the end of the day they're not boycotting anything Rockets related and will still buy tickets, watch on tv, buy jerseys, etc. The Rockets organization aren't going to give 2 shits because they're still going to get their money.
