Troubled MLB Star Jose Canseco Tweets A Marriage Proposal To Shania Twain

Canseco-tweet2

(PCM) Things have not been going too well for troubled MLB star Jose Canseco these days. He recently blew part of his finger off while cleaning his gun at his home in Las Vegas, NV. Doctors were able to reattach his finger, however he then decided it would be a really funny joke to say that it fell off again during a poker game. Newsflash Jose … not funny!

After all the drama with the finger, Canseco then got into an altercation with his girlfriend and her mother that ended with the police showing up at his door. His girlfriend ended up breaking off their engagement and moving back to Los Angeles.

Now it seems that Canseco has made an attempt to look for love online and recently sent a tweet to country singer Shania Twain asking for her hand in marriage. He also tweeted a bare chested picture of himself as well!  Just bizarre!

The tweets, which have since been deleted said “Already tired of being single looking to get married asap.” Followed by his proposal to Twain which read “@ShaniaTwain want to get married we were supposed to meet when I played for the Blue Jays in 1998″.

There has been no word as to whether or not Twain saw the tweets! Canseco must be truly getting desperate, as Twain happens to be a happily married woman.

Twitter Sues The U.S. Government

Twitter1

(PCM) Social media giant Twitter has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government for the right to disclose and publish the full amount of government surveillance requests they receive.

Twitter has always been a huge advocate for free speech and would like the opportunity to be more forthcoming with its’ users about the full nature and the total number of requests for private user information that they receive from government agencies.

The lawsuit is based off an agreement made between internet companies such as Google and Microsoft which allow these companies the right to disclose the number of orders they receive, however only in broad ranges for example zero to 999.

In their lawsuit Twitter is stating that they should have the right to disclose the exact number of request that they receive rather than a broad range. Twitter vice president Ben Lee had the following to say “It’s our belief that we are entitled under the First Amendment to respond to our users’ concerns and to the statements of U.S. government officials by providing information about the scope of U.S. government surveillance — including what types of legal process have not been received”.

Twitter made an attempt to send a full disclosure report over to the FBI for publishing approval back in April of this year, but were denied their right to publish. Do you think as social media users we should have the full right to know the number of requests and just who may be looking at our accounts? Or do you feel it is an issue of national and international security and should remain secret?

Donald Trump Makes Yet Another Twitter Gaffe

Donald-Trump1

(PCM) It seems that despite being pretty active on social media, Donald Trump is still trying to wrap his head around Twitter. He should probably hire some kind of social media coordinator so that instances like the one that happened to him today could be avoided in the future.

A user going by the handle @feckhead tweeted the following message to Trump:

“My parents who passed away always said you were big inspiration. Can you pls RT for their memory?”

Of course, Trump retweeted the message that also included a photo of people that he obviously thought were @feckhead’s parents.

However, it turned out that Trump got pranked and the photo that he retweeted was actually a snapshot of notorious murderers Fred and Rose West … opps!

It took Trump and his team almost an hour to realize the major Twitter mistake and the tweet has since been deleted from his account, but of course not before it has already begun circulating the net.

The person behind the Twitter prank was comedian Philip Bradbury and after the news began to circulate, his number of Twitter followers began to soar. Also, others started to get in on the fun with people posting images of everyone from Freddy Kruger to Darth Vadar requesting a retweet from Mr. Trump.

The West’s went on their murderous rampage from the years of 1973-1979. Fred West killed himself in his jail cell back in 1995 and Rose West is still currently serving a life sentence.

The CIA Has Joined Twitter

CIA1

(PCM) Proving that some government officials do have a sense of humor, the CIA has jumped on the social media bandwagon and joined Twitter with an incredibly humorous first tweet.

In fact, it is probably the most witty starting tweet that any government agency has ever posted on Twitter now that we really think about it!

You can see the tweet below, which has already received over 250,000 retweets and over 150,000 favorites. The CIA is one of the last of the major government agencies to join Twitter.

The CIA has garnered over 500,000 followers since joining Twitter and are following 25 accounts, which are other government agencies of course…wouldn’t it freak people out if the CIA twitter account actually started following regular civilian accounts…haha!

The selfie was snapped by none other than Bradley Cooper and now we all know why Ellen was wishing that his arms were just a little bit longer!

 

And it gets better! This amazing tweet is officially the most retweeted tweet of all time!  Its’ sheer awesomeness was even enough to crash the major social network for a few moments.
