How Not To Tweet

I don't want Channel 8's Brett Shipp to go after me, but I don't think this is the way Twitter works. ("JWP" stands for "John Wiley Price".)  If it's important enough to be newsworthy these days, it can't wait eight hours before you tell us about it. Either someone will beat you to the punch, or it's really not a big deal at all.

I talked to Officer Lon Moore and he said JWP's ass was grass.

What are you saying?

Reporters are using twitter as an advertisement.

The details at 10PM will have as many details as the tweet does, so what's the big deal. Do we know anymore details about yesterday's raid today? No. If you are waiting to get your news from talking heads at 10:00, then I can understand why you are a liberal weenie.

Does anyone else see similarities between Price and Al Lipscomb? Both made a name for themselves by protesting and championing the "poor, downtrodden black people's cause". Both finally get elected. Both (somehow) make a lot of $$$ after election. Both probably moved away from their original neighborhoods (to where you probably couldn't find another black within shouting distance). Both start parking Bentleys and the like outside their mansions. Both get busted for corruption (if things turn out bad for Price in the near future). And both STILL act like they're championing the "poor, downtrodden blacks" in Dallas and Dallas County! And yes, I know Al Lipscomb is now past tense in his "representation" due to his dying recently.

Why is using Twitter not twitting, twitt, or twitted?

Al Lipscomb never left his neighborhood, and lived in a 1960s2-1 with his wife, a nurse who supported him through most of his carreer. He unquestionably took money from white leaders in Dallas and often did what he was told, but be did indeed champion his race and his neighborhood, and was by no means affluent.

Don't forget to add Diane Ragsdale to the mix of stepping on her own kind to get on top.

Those three made me sick. Talk about racism! They were the worst racists themselves!

Al had what on his Lips?

Maybe Al wrote a letter to the FBI about JWP which was to only be opened after his death? Coinkydinky to say the least.

It was probably abbreviated to keep it as brief as possible. People have a short attention span.

Is Evon Gonzoles behind this?
