Twitter - Serious Business

Keyboard warriors were out in force over the weekend. Darron Gibson of Manchester United decided to delete his Twitter account just a few hours after it's creation because of all the abuse he received.

Despite spelling his name Darron, rather than the real way Darren. I do feel a bit sorry for Gibson. Surely he isn't stupid enough to think he wouldn't get some insults but he surely didn't think the majority of them would be from his own fans.
"You're a one trick pony - a s*** one at that. What Fergie sees in you I don't know."
"Nothing would make me happier than if we sold you this summer. You're probably a nice bloke, but an awful footballer."

Are just a few examples, there were of course about another thousand "you are shit LOL" posts. Let's put some things into perspective. Darron Gibson is a professional football for one of the best clubs in the world, he will be making probably £20k a week, he will be sleeping with the best looking (and least intelligent) women in Manchester every weekend. His abusers are most likely 15 year old spotty twats with 3 inch penises who can't even kick a real football and who's only social interaction is playing Call of Duty online with other 15 year old spotty twats with 3 inch penises.

It blows my mind that Gibson actually cared what some fat virgins from the land of internet said on his Twitter.  I'd have just replied with a video of me sat there getting blown by some vacuous but hot glamour model, with a chef cooking me up a steak in the kitchen, as I scored a goal with Darron Gibson on FIFA11 and of course watched the replay 1000 times until the angry internet nerds exploded with rage.
