However, Barkley has had problems with Twitterand its usersin the past.
Tweet is for losers. Tweet is for losers. What I mean by that. If you wake up in the morning and you worried about what Im doing, you are a damn idiot. You are a damn idiot, Barkley said on his website in 2011.

Today maybe. Tomorrow could be a whole different thing.
I agree with him and you.
Twitter is a useful tool, you just need to filter it.
Sir Charles, are you about to run for office out of Arizona?
Wow, two things in a row I agree with.
LOL! I agree. This is the second thing he said that I agree with.
I have never been to Twitter, and have no plan to do so.
Twitter is for twits.
Like him or not, Charles Barkley has usually been a straight shooter. I remember early on when he utterly rejected the notion that sports figures should be role models:
“I’m not a role model... Just because I dunk a basketball doesn’t mean I should raise your kids.”
“Poor people cannot rely on the government to come to help you in times of need. You have to get your education. Then nobody can control your destiny.”
“I don’t care what people think. people are stupid.”
“My family got all over me because they said Bush is only for the rich people. Then I reminded them, ‘Hey, I’m rich’.”
“I love New York City; I’ve got a gun.”
“If I weren’t earning $3 million a year to dunk a basketball, most people on the street would run in the other direction if they saw me coming.”
Thank you for clearing up what Barkley is all about. I will sleep better tonight.<FMCDH(BITS)
Yep. Some people just can’t control themselves.
The fact is that twitter is a powerful tool for instant communication and news.
“The fact is that twitter is a powerful tool for instant communication and news.”
That’s right. I heard about Wendy Davis ‘stand with Wendy’ live on Twitter. I learned the Pope was about to be announced way before the tv said it. You can directly speak to your Congressman and Senators on Twitter and get a response.
Knocking these programs is like laughing at the invention of the light bulb or the phone.
Every time I hear the word conservative, it makes me sick to my stomach
I apply a high-pass filter, low-pass filter, and band-pass filter, then it's perfect.
A straight shooter is somebody who says what he thinks. It doesn’t mean he agrees with you. But you can like him for being honest, even if his politics are wacky.
Think about it, can you name a liberal Democrat who is as honest?
There is a vast, hidden cost to all this meretricious technology.
First, technology has eliminated most manual labor jobs.
And now technology is assuming the role of information provider, gradually and relentlessly eliminating the jobs of those of us paid for what we know.
In the end, only those few who own the technology, like Google, will benefit.
The rest of us will be serfs who will likely revolt to make technology state-owned, so the state can dole out the products of technolgoy to everyone equally no matter individual merit.
That is where this technology crap is taking us.
Can you imagine how this could end otherwise?
