I’d give ‘em a hah! And a hiii-yah!
Alternate title: you have got to be kidding.
Twitter tells Olympic judo champ Kayla Harrison to stop tweeting so much
That’s via Twitchy. And…what? Did I read that right?
Twitter will tell you you’re tweeting too much? How does that even work?
Maybe she meant her computer was slowing down from all the activity? Or maybe her coach or somebody – her PR people – needed her to be doing something else?
Because, really, you just won the Olympic gold medal in Judo. And somebody’s going to tell you to stop tweeting? You look like this:
And somebody’s going to tell you to stop tweeting?
Hey, Kayla! You have my personal permission to tweet all you want. If twitter doesn’t like it, tell them to come talk to me. The Trog. Not that it’ll do any good, of course. But it’ll give me a chance to screech “she won the gold Olympic frickin’ medal! You can’t tell her to stop tweeting!”
And that’ll make me feel better.
By the way, I grabbed this pic from Harrison’s twitter feed. It was labeled “Relaxing before opening ceremonies!!!!! Starting to get excited! :)”

It’s possible she thought the book was about a bodybuilder. It’s possible she was just using it to keep her laptop from wobbling. It’s also possible that she thinks Hank Reardon is a frickin’ wuss who needed to tell that committee to shove their stupid certificate right up their asses.
Dunno. Still. Cool.
UPDATE – Linked at Camp of the Saints, where Bob has more of Kayla’s actual story, as opposed to the nonsense I went with.
