I follow Off The Ball on twitter for GGA related content so tweets about the likes of rugby football and the EPL League don’t interest me.
They had a thing going for ages where they’d tweet commentary clips - “click to hear how Dave McIntyre & Gary Breen saw Charlie Austin’s near miss for the Saints at Turf Moor - live commentary now on Newstalk” type stuff. That may be over 140/280 characters but along those lines.
I replied one random Sunday to such a tweet from @OffTheBall basically saying surely there’s only about 17 people in Ireland who care about Bournemouth-Watford and they’re probably watching it on Sky.
Adrian Barry went apoplectic and I had a to and fro with him. Then he retweeted his tweets and my replies - “here’s the petty criticism we get for providing a great service to Irish fans of the EPL” - and I had a series of Fergals from Dungarvan, massive Middlesboro’ fan, type psychos tweeting me.
I was very very upset.
