Future Hall of Famer Gets Twitter, Gets More Attention
Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones may have been scatched from the line up with back issues on Friday night, but his Twitter revealed the reason. The future Hall of Famer, in his last season with his only team are facing divisional rivals New York Mets in the last series Jones will play in Citi Field.
Jones, on Twitter @RealCJ10, really lets his country hang out, too. The Braves are really taking on his new catch phrases of “yicketty” and “whammo” (usually in reference to home runs or big hits) in their social media promotions and practices. It’s catching on, despite some not understanding it, but appreciating his candor.
His last few tweets are hilarious, check it out. Jones, who announced he will retire at the end of the 2012 season during Spring Training, joined Twitter last month, debunking imposters and charming his way into my heart one country Tweet at a time. He has over 100,000 followers, and the Braves even had a 5 game winning streak after he joined.
