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.
That’s rich - given some of his past statements.
“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?
There's something positive.
May I add, this is our future.
Fo shizzle, Rachel Jeantel be using it, so it got to be good, nigga!
Well, of course it does. If there's one thing I can't stand about FR it's the folks who can't simply make up their mind and say what they want to say without going on and on and on and on and on about stuff that is purely irrelevant to the topic but is something they're obsessed over and can't let go of like the time my Aunt Gertrude got into the chicken house with her fuzzy slippers on and stomped back into the house with feathers and chicken poop stuck to the little hairs, which made her feet look like something out of a George Romero move, not the one about the zombie Hari Krishnas in the shopping center but the one with the dissected zombie on the table with its brain showing, yeah, that one, and Uncle Bert was so ticked off because he'd just rented a carpet steamer from the local Safeway and was going to lose his deposit if he got chicken poop in it but he had to run it anyway and I'd have been ticked off too well anyway, Aunt Gertrude was one of those people who simply could not shut up about something once it got into her head and she was sure that there was something moving in the chicken house that wasn't chickens or zombies either - Aunt Gertrude didn't believe in zombies, can you believe it? But anyway Uncle Bert got out the shotgun and went stomping out there but there wasn't anything in the chicken house at all, not even a fox or a weasel or a Democrat or even a zombie which I thought there was but I was only twelve at the time and you can't blame me for watching too many George Romero movies, anyway, what I don't like are people who waste everybody's time going on and on and on and on about stuff that hey, wait a minute, I'm hearing something outside and it's probably a zombie or a Democrat and I gotta go now and grab my shotgun and to hell with the carpet steamer anyway. What was the question again?
Hear hear. Little too much pot/kettle/black going on in this thread.
There, I fixed it.
Not everyone on Twitter is a Kardashian.
