ESPN Insider Takes Hilarious Shot at Rangers About Unwritten Rules of Twitter
There's been no shortage of discussion about the "unwritten rules of baseball" recently. Everyone seems to have an opinion on just how much Fernando Tatis Jr. has ruined the sacred integrity of the sport by trying his hardest to play well, and plenty of that has been directed at the Texas Rangers.
In an effort to quiet the criticism, the team's official Twitter account used a newly added Twitter feature to disable replies on their tweet about losing to the Padres on Tuesday. That clearly backfired, as they drew even more ridicule for it.
It turns out disabling replies does not, in fact, leave you immune to criticism. And by goading potential trolls, this tweet drew a lot more attention than it might have otherwise. That was retweeted 3.3 thousand times, as of Wednesday morning, while none of the account's previous 10 tweets had more than 300 retweets.
Some teams are better at Twitter than others, and we can chalk this one up as the second L the Rangers took on Tuesday.
