Pitino dubs his Twitter followers “Pitweetos”

A brand new day in the Bluegrass is made even better by the fact that Rick Pitino is tweeting again.

After promising to bring a spirit of optimism to social media in his first tweet yesterday, Pitino brought the jokes this morning, apologizing to his followers, aka “Pitweetos,” for the spelling errors in his bio:

Leave it to Rick to blame it on someone else.

He followed that up four minutes later with a tweet about visiting the Bellarmine basketball team, for which he received “15 beautiful handwritten letters”:

Commas are your friend, Rick. But, please, don’t stop.

      I’m just waiting for him to get into a flame war with a troll.

  2. Can I say it again? The gift that keeps on giving.

    So Pitino is calling Louisville home despite the fact that he swore he would never return here?

    Clearly no one ever gave him the gift of class.

    Why is KSR reporting on Rick PITINO stuff…?! No one cares about Rick PITINO like you do. Please stop re-posting stuff of Rick PITINO. My goodness this is insanity and similar to “middle-school” antics & idiosyncrasies…senior staff please address this “contributer” and BAN Rick PITINO prints…

      Yeah, when is it enough? They are entertaining, but eventually it has to fade, right? He’s not at Louisville anymore, so even the relevance has to fade eventually…

      It’s really easy to keep scrolling if you don’t care about a post. It entertains a lot of people, the site doesn’t just cater to you. And the more you comment, the more hits they get so they’ll just keep posting.

      Yep Yep Yep you are right in the same it applies to you as well. But I think I speak for a lot of people and ask why on a Kentucky sports radio news blog that we see repetitive rick Pitino articles it doesn’t make any Sense whatsoever to do an article on Rick Pitino it has nothing to do with Kentucky the University of Kentucky or any sports for the University of Kentucky so why in gods name do they write and post articles about Rick Pitino

      Annnnnnd it’s really easy for contributors to not post articles that has NOTHING to do with Kentucky Sports…right!?

      I personally like watching him go down in flames, if I didn’t I would just choose not to read it at all. But I do love it. Keep it coming.

      He, that truly is a “she” response…totally hypocritical of your “call-sign” chief!

      Come on man! Scroll past it. I like keeping up a lot of things including stuff I don’t like. You don’t have to read it.

      Isn’t that an oxymoron you like reading stuff you don’t like that’s hard for me to understand

      And in case anyone has forgotten, it is Kentucky basketball related. He was the coach who made us relevant again. I agree, scroll on if it doesn’t interest you or it annoys you.

      Adolph Rupp made us relevant not Rick Pitino

      Guess you’re too young to remember the Beatles Medic. Aren’t you the same one complaining about Terry Wilson being our QB? Hmmmmmm.

      I was complaining I was speaking truth about the overall qualities of a Champion QB…anyone can handoff and run the ball…to win Championships you have to be a great passing QB. That was my angle. You will see that Wilson will have to win the game with his arm tomorrow night. Their defense will make him throw. If he can’t then Hoak will have to get under Center again to save the win…they will scheme for both run games to make him throw. I think he’s ready for it and so we’ll see how it goes. I am excited.

      Medic you’re not very good at UK basketball history. Yes Rupp made us relevant but maybe you’ve forgotten how long we went without being relevant before Pitino arrived. Pitino, whether you love him or hate him, brought us back to prominence in a short period of time. But again if it bothers you, keep scrolling.

      Hunh!? Are you crazy!? Joe B Hall…Eddie…you must have been in diapers and still wet behind the ears to know what occurred in the 70-80’s era and slick Rick had 1 NCAA championship and I wonder what else he supplied those boys…by the way CM Newton was the reason we stayed so “relevant” if anyone…not the slick talkin’ New Yorkuuuuah’

      Rrrrrright…he won one NCAA Championship. Wow!

      Because clicks mean money and Pitino means clicks. Are you some kind of commie?

    • It may be overdone, but come on, the man just keeps stepping in it. If he would just ride off into the sunset and enjoy retirement there would be nothing to report on.

      Medic, son if you ever were really in the military you must have spent too much time in the poppy fields of Afghanistan. I was around for Rupp on up, I guess you don’t remember but until Pitino the last championship was in 78′, Sutton put us on probation and Pitino brought us back to prominence. Seriously put down the crack pipe and go back to the military if all you want to do is start arguments and complain about everything. Bottom line is Pitino does have something to do with UK. So deal with it chief.

      Pitino is a former coach at UK. Clearly he has something to do with UK sports. I also love how you’re casually sexist there, Combat. Being a woman isn’t bad and shouldn’t be used as an insult. Grow up.

    But he’s already returned. Last Friday…of course a payment was involved.

    I hope KSR stops following him soon.

    Actually with that apostrophe, he is calling himself Pitweeto, not his followers.

    He has a constant need to be stroked, referring to his ego.
