In case this little tidbit passed over your radar on a holiday weekend, somebody hacked into the political twitter account of FoxNews and posted a couple tweetsclaiming that President Obama had been shot and killed. It was quickly removed and retracted by the actual FoxNews, and I have a gut feeling the Secret Service will take care of that problem quietly. Obviously, since the President is alive and well, we can talk somewhat jokingly about the issue. Because I got into a conversation at work about what you would write if you could hack somebody’s account. You can go about this hacked tweet in 2 different ways:
1) Opposite Tweets: This means that you would tweet something that would be opposite what you would normally see on that twitter account. For instance, you might see Pat Forde’s twitter congratulate Calipari on having a wonderful season with high character players.
2) Absurd Tweets: Much like the FoxNews tweet, this is something that you would expect from that Twitter account, but maybe takes it to another level. For instance, you might see Gene Chizik tweet that he just got back from a recruiting trip and his back pocket feels lighter. Something like that.
So, I want you to be creative. Pick any person or school or organization’s twitter account, whether it actually exists or not, and hack into it. Tell me what you would tweet if you had the chance. Just a couple examples to get the ball rolling:
@DerekDooley: Feels good to know I at least have 1 win scheduled every year. Thanks UK.
@BoogieCousins: As it turns out, technical fouls in pickup games don’t get me a contract bonus. Whoops.
@JerryTipton: Just gave Cal a ride to the airport. Nothing but nice things to say about that man.
Stuff like that. Ball is in your court KSR readers.
