Does anyone else follow Elliott on his Twitter??

First, he can't spell for sh*t. He's in "louden". Don't know where that is b/c the race is in LOUDON.

His "vocabulary" leaves must to be desired. Does he think he's a rapper?

Why does he NEVER mention the wife?? The only mention I have seen is when he said "we tested out the new washer and dryer". He seems to be ALWAYS off with his friends.

I used to be a huge and supporter of his. I haven't liked what I have seen of him as a driver or a person lately and this Twitter is NOT helping.

I am guessing some haven't seen alot of texting, spelling means nothing. You think twitter is bad, you should see how the greatly educated youth of today text.

I will never understand why people care about if he speaks about or on his relationship with his wife. I like a few drivers today and I don't care if I hear what their personal life is about, but to each their own I guess.

I read his twitter. I understand how some fans don't care about driver's personal lives or relationships,etc. Most of the other driver's twitter sites mention wives/gf/families/etc.

I think in Elliott's case people care about it b/c he never mentions her. He talks about things he does with his buddies - which is constant and frequent. And I think it's odd, again b/c other drivers do, that he doesn't mention her at all.

JMO :)

Nope. But I will say he has not had to work for anything in his life, and because he was a jock in a small rural school from a rich family, that education was not primary in his life. It does shows when he doesn't have a ghost writer and now that is transparent for the past tens years, someone else has been editing all his personal press releases.

Fat fingering a letter now and then is one thing, and happens, but his tweets are reviling to say the least.

I hope you are not foolish enough to think Elliott Sadler is the only one. I would bet money on that 100% of them do the exact same thing. Just like other sports as well.

That is how the world of sports articles are done, unless you are living in a different world than the rest of us.

See Vickers or Newman if you want a driver with aome smarts and an educational background and are not afraid to show it.

The transparency of Twitter tells alot about Elliott, are other drivers having this problem now too?

I didn't know twitter was transparent. All it tells me is that he doesn't slow down when texting on a phone and doesn't really care if it's "correct", like most of the people I see on twitter.

I know engineers who couldn't drive a stick shift or change out the RAM in a computer, so don't be impressed with just an engineering background. My favorite newman quote was "the only iron I lifted in the off season was a fork." Now you would think a smart guy like that would want to be in better shape, doesn't mean that quote isn't great, funny and perfect but it shows his lack of "smarts" on being in better shape that year. It's all relative. They are people just like the rest of us, not any smarter just in a different field of study.

Don't know much about Vickers, he was mad today when his teammate spun him out in the nationwide race.

And some people are smarter than others , while others are are media wh*res and it shows.
You really think Elliott is a brain surgeon? With one failed semester of college?

You don't see the difference?

I see newman is alot smarter when it comes to engineering, you don't see the difference? It's all relative.

Who says Elliott is a brain surgeon?
I know better to assume how smart someone is because of how they speak, where they went to school or what their job is.

I mean we are on a message board at midnight, on a Saturday night, i don't think we are a beacon of intelligence right now.

To me twitter is dumb it is a form of online stalking that isn't needed. Let's put out there where we are going and when so every nut job knows. I know Elliott just wants to be like everyone else but sometimes he needs to use his head for more than holding his hat. He didn't use it this winter and he hasn't used it since.

So Newman has a college degree in engineering for that matter and that makes him smarter? I think you just proved a point.

you asked, scroll up.

Elliot is exposing himself with this twitter fade, a few months from now it will be something is right?

So what happened in the NW race today? I read here the Elliott had a good car. Something must have happened.

You try and make a concise point in 140 characters or less. It's difficult to be gramatically correct. You have to edit, abbreviate, and get creative sometimes. Notice Elliott's use of the word We instead of we're sometimes. I think he's fun and I don't mind for a second that he doesn't mention his wife. I've yet to see Ryan Newman mention his. Hermie doesn't talk about his wife, but he does often brag on his daughter's softball team. Elliott's buddy big john however seems to be obnoxious and annoying as hell. I can't even read his posts, he says holla too damn much and doesn't understand punctuation. That is what I consider a redneck. I'm sure he's nice and fun to be around in person. But in writing, I don't think he's as cool or as funny as he thinks he is. Hermie's posts are great, as are Brett's. Elliott's getting better, and his buddy Blake Shelton is hilarious. Like any of them (especially Blake) they could all probably give two shits if you like them or follow them or not. Don't throw out that silly, "I used to be a fan" crap. If you're not a fan because of the way he Tweets, you were never a fan to begin with. And Yes, they all use a mouth piece to put out articles and press releases. It's called Public and Media Relations. Every entertainer has somebody. In this case it would fall in the hands of Ryan Barry for Richard Petty Motorsports (also on Twitter) and Brett Griffin. Elliott and the rest of the drivers are also well versed in giving interviews. They know how to think before they speak and to give good answers to appeal to their sponsors and organizations. Places like Twitter allow them to let their hair down a litle more if they feel like it. Relax and enjoy it. No need to disect every single fiber of his being.

I agree accept about Blake and Big John Black is an arogant drunk who gets his jollies being rude and crude I actually after a few days blocked him as I have more respect for myself and others than that. Not to mention that apparently at times someone else is doing it for him. Big John well he is just the big small town man trying to have fun and fit it. Elliott I just laugh at cause both personally and proffesionally he has bigger problems then twitter. While I still think its stupid at least it is a place where his comments are not scripted.
