(Deadspin) — Earlier this week, SI.com published its Twitter 100, a list of Twitter feeds that Sports Illustrated staffers considered “essential to their daily routine for finding news, information and entertainment from the sports world.” Today, we offer a counterpoint: The Deadspin Twitter -100*, our list of the 67 worst sports-related Twitter accounts. We adhered to no criteria while compiling this list, and we did not work exceptionally hard on it. Hope you hate these Twitter feeds as much as we do.
So Barstool Junior declared that I have the 43rd worst twitter account (@stoolpresidente) to follow in the universe today. Everybody has been blowing me up asking for my response. Well the truth is I’m not nearly as fired up as people probably think I am. Because let’s cut the shit. I’m fucking electric on twitter. Everybody knows that. I mean there isn’t a day that goes by in which somebody doesn’t tell me “they don’t know how they lived before they started following me.” So this would be like somebody saying Michael Jordan is the 43rd worst basketball player of all time. You think that bothers him? He knows he’s the best. I know I’m the best. Period. That’s why it was just straight prep school face when I heard about this article
More importantly the thing I’m mad about here is that I’m even blogging this story. Because I know Deadspin loves my shit. Hell they use it for half their blogs. This article was written for one reason and one reason only. Let’s see if we can trick Davey Pageviews into acknowledging us and get more readers and twitter followers. Maybe 1 college kid will find out what Deadspin is so they don’t turn into WEEI where all our audience is over the age of 85. It’s psychology 101 and even though I knew what they were doing I still blogging them anyway and probably kept their lights on for another couple months. Shame on me I suppose. What can I say I’m a sucker for charity.
