Ozzie Guillen couldn’t stay away from Twitter

Ozzie Guillen quit Twitter in May, explaining his decision in typical Ozzie fashion:
Yeah, I hate Twitter. Everybody following me can [expletive] his pants. You can quote me on that one. Don’t follow me anymore. Twitter is a stupid thing. I never make money out of that. When you speak Spanish, you speak Spanish. When you speak English, you don’t know how to spell “English.” Get a real job, get a life. I don’t make money out of that. I’m done.

And yet yesterday he unretired from Twitter, telling his 250,000 followers “iam. baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack” (that’s a direct quote) before posting another 10 tweets in the next 12 hours. During his Twitter break Guillen seems to have developed a fondness for periods. For instance, here’s his Twitter analysis of the Democratic National Convention last night:

michelle obama great. job. and. whit all my. respect she. look. great. congrats. to. her.

And here’s a later tweet about golfing:

golf. game. yes be. cancel. thank. god. i. was playing. bad. lol. two much. water. terrible. now. drive. back. to. miami

I’m not sure how long Ozzie will stick with Twitter this time around, but it’s good to have him back.

(Incidentally, “everybody following me can [expletive] his pants” is something everyone on Twitter should be forced to tweet at least once per day, as sort of a mantra.)
